Manchester’s Met Office forecast shows a sharp fall in the temperature across the city but some sunnier days ahead.

Following a wet and windy period across Manchester, the temperatures are set to drop. The Met Office forecast comes after several flood warnings were issued by the Environment Agency across the North West of England.

The mild temperatures experienced at the start of the month are set to fade away as soon as this weekend. Tonight (January 14) is set to be wet and windy, but things should dry up by the morning. Sunday (January 15) should have a high temperature of around 7C.

The temperature will gradually drop through the week, with the coldest set to be 2C on Tuesday January 17. The ‘feels like’ temperature will be as low as -3C on Monday due to the clear skies in the Met Office forecast.

The weather should remain dry but cloudy for much of the week. Temperatures will remain under 5C until at least January 20.

On Friday, it will be both cloudy and milder following the spell of colder weather. For any changes to the forecast looking at the week ahead, visit the Met Office website.
