Thousands of local residents had their evening interrupted yesterday after one of the largest storms in decades arrived in the city, and caused a lot of noise.
The storm arrived over Bath at around 6pm, with a short spell moving across the city before another formed at around 9pm.
The torrential rain was accompanied by thunder and lightning, some of which was so loud that some residents reported their windows shaking and movement in their homes.
The train line between Swindon and Bath Spa was closed due to signalling problems, believed to have been caused by a lightning strike.
The same line remains closed this morning due to flash flooding, which is severely affecting services between Chippenham and Bath Spa.
First Great Western say that no road replacement transport can be sourced before 9am.
First Somerset and Avon services are currently conveying passengers between Bath Spa and Chippenham in both directions.
Arrangements have been made for First Great Western rail tickets to be accepted on bus numbers 231, 234, 264 and 265.
Stagecoach West services are also conveying passengers between Chippenham and Swindon in both directions.
Arrangements have been made for First Great Western rail tickets to be accepted on bus numbers 49 and 55. Customers with car parking tickets for Chippenham station may travel to either Swindon or Bath Spa.
Though the Met Office had said there could be some stormy weather in the south west, it seems this was much larger than anticipated.
Avon Fire and Rescue were taking part in a simulated exercise at the Roman Baths on Stall Street during the evening, which sparked some rumours of a fire in Primark caused by the weather.
The storm continued into the early hours, slowing moving away from the city. More stormy weather is possible later today.
Here’s a selection of photos sent into NOW Bath throughout the storm, enjoy.
