No, it is a weather phenomenon. Obviously, He is in control of thunder, but if that is God talking, then what is rain or snow?

Thunder is a sound caused by lightning. The increase of heat and pressure from lightning causes a rapid expansion of air that creates a shock-wave, similar to a sonic-boom.

The sound thunder produces is just a natural effects of charged particles occurring in the sky. It occurs along with lightning, so it is an evidence and manifestation of one of the many things put in place by God to regulate the earth. This is a natural phenomenon. God speaking to man is spiritual, though the hearer may think they are hearing the voice physically. The sound of thunder is not God talking to us.

Thunder is the sound caused by lightning. Depending on the distance and nature of the lightning, thunder can range from a sharp, loud crack to a long, low rumble (brontide). The sudden increase in pressure and temperature from lightning produces rapid expansion of the air surrounding and within a bolt of lightning. In turn, this expansion of air creates a sonic shock wave, similar to a sonic boom, which produces the sound of thunder, often referred to as a clap, crack, or peal of thunder. The distance of the lightning can be calculated by the listener based on the time interval from when the lightning is seen to when the sound is heard.
