First two storms of Autumn set to hit the UK this week - how will it affect Manchester?

Experts have forecast a miserable start to autumn as two heavy storms are set to arrive in the UK.

Strong gales of wind emerging from northern Scotland are expected to be as powerful as 50mph on Monday, with storms forming as a result on Wednesday.

Heavy downpours of rain have been predicted before scattered showers are blown across the country as a result of the windy conditions.

The Environment Agency has issued a weather alert across England for flooding, meaning that there is the potential of damage to housing and businesses - but will any of this impact Manchester?

Weather agency, the Met Office, is predicting a rather overcast week that is largely dry with brief spells of sunshine, before the weather becomes slightly unsettled towards Wednesday.

There will be periods of fog, mist and cloudy skies though conditions will be dry and mild on Monday and Tuesday.

Temperatures will range from 17-19℃ with intermittent showers taking place from Wednesday onwards.

Light rain will continue throughout the weekend, though it will remain cloudy with a peak of 78% coverage on Sunday.

Similar to the rest of the UK, conditions will get wetter and wetter next week with Manchester expecting to have fairly heavy rainfall for three continuous days.

From September 28 to September 30, experts, AccuWeather, have forecast that there will be eight-and-a-half hours of rain, with highs of 11.7mm.

Despite not feeling the full effects of the storm this week, bad weather will continue to sweep Manchester.
