Greater Manchester basks in balmy 19C before temperatures plunge to 1C next week


For the last week we’ve enjoyed temperatures reaching 19C across Greater Manchester – but the warm weather isn’t set to last much longer.

While the settled weather should continue into Sunday, temperatures are expected to fall away towards the middle of next week. Some parts of the UK could even be subject to snowfall as a cold snap could bring light flurries to higher grounds.

By Monday, March 28, temperatures will start to drop slightly but will remain dry and fine for most. By Tuesday, more unsettled and cooler weather is expected from the middle of next week.

Temperatures could drop to as low as 1C in some part of Greater Manchester.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Paul Gundersen said: “Although the UK has had a good deal of fine and settled March weather in recent days, a change is on the way from the middle of next week with colder air spreading down from the north and the increasing likelihood of rain for most areas.

“On the hills in the north, there’s a chance of this falling as snow, although we’ll gain more certainty on that in the coming days.

“With the influence of some unsettled weather, we’ll be seeing a marked drop in temperatures for most with colder air arriving from the north.

“This will see maximum temperatures drop into single figures for many areas, and below freezing overnight.”
