It’s not been a bad start to July in Manchester, but this looks to have changed at least for the time being.

Heavy rain has returned to Greater Manchester, with today (July 9) looking like the worst day of the week. Showers have been forecast throughout the morning and then again into the evening. A high temperature of 21C could have a muggy feel to it. 

Wednesday will bring some respite from the rain, at least until the afternoon. A cloudy day is on the cards, with a cooler high temperature of 17C. Light showers will return throughout the day on Thursday (July 11). The heavy cloud will keep the sunshine away, but there may be glimpses of this in the evening.

According to the Met Office forecast, this will be the last day of rain for the week. Cloud will remain for the weekend, and the temperature will be in the high teens until the new week where it could get back into the 20s.
