A disappointing start to June weather is set to change in Greater Manchester this week, with warmer conditions on the horizon. 

Temperatures have been on the cool side for most of the month so far, with plenty of rain around. The Met Office has a yellow warning for thunderstorms in Manchester on Tuesday, with showers expected in the evening. 

Despite the bad weather forecast, weather experts suggest that a ‘shift’ in the weather is on the way. Temperatures are set to rise again across Greater Manchester, with sunny spells also set to return.

After reaching the high teens on Tuesday, the high temperature in Manchester will hit 20C on Wednesday (June 19). This will remain the case throughout the week and into the next, with a high of 24C forecast for Monday (June 24). 

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Dan Harris said: “In stark contrast to the first half of June, where temperatures have widely been below average, we are expecting to see a steady uptick through the second half of this week, rising to around or above average, and it will likely feel very warm for those in the sunshine.

“This initial spell of warm conditions isn’t expected to last too long however, as it turns more changeable through Friday and into the weekend with areas of cloud and rain spilling east across the UK.”
