Weather warn­ing with heavy rain fore­cast for rest of week

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

IT is go­ing to be a week­end washout in Greater Manch­ester with heavy rain show­ers and blus­tery winds ex­pected to con­tinue un­til Sun­day.

Any­body plan­ning to at­tend a Re­mem­brance Sun­day event or the Manch­ester Derby is ad­vised to take a rain­coat or um­brella as it is go­ing to be a wet one.

Fore­cast­ers are warn­ing the heavy rain could even cause de­lays to driv­ers and pub­lic trans­port.

Due to leaves fall­ing and block­ing drains at this time of year, there could also be sur­face flood­ing on the roads.

The mis­er­able con­di­tions con­tinue to­day, with Greater Manch­ester set to be soaked late in the af­ter­noon and into the evening.

Along­side the heavy rain show­ers there will be strong blus­tery winds, with gusts reach­ing speeds of 40-45mph.

They could reach gale force speeds in some ar­eas.

By Satur­day and Sun­day the weather will still be un­set­tled, but fore­cast­ers have said it will brighten up a bit.

Sunny spells are likely through­out both days. How­ever, there will also be some scat­tered blus­tery show­ers and breezy con­di­tions in­ter­rupt­ing the sunny pe­ri­ods.

De­spite the rain and wind, tem­per­a­tures will re­main mild.

On Fri­day, there will be highs of around 12C, while on Satur­day and Sun­day tem­per­a­tures will climb to around 13C.

Weather ex­perts have said the tem­per­a­tures are above av­er­age for this time of year, but it will feel cooler due to the breeze.
