Schools across Manchester shut their doors for the mid-term holiday next month, but weather experts have rubbished any claims of a hot October break with a forecast of mild temperatures.

Students will enjoy some much-needed time off starting on October 22, lasting until November 1.

Weather service, AccuWeather, expects conditions to be mostly cloudy with brief spells of gusty wind, rainfall and sunshine as temperatures peak at 16℃.

The half-term is set to have a blustery beginning, with 65km/h winds blowing their way across the city, as well as four hours and 8.2mm of rain.

This is despite October 22 being set to record one of their warmer days of the month, with the mild temperature of 15℃ expected.

The overall forecast of the first five days of the holiday is rather miserable and dull, as skies are expected to be largely cloudy with highs of 93% cover on October 23.

Intermittent showers begin from October 24, with brief spells of rainfall during the morning and afternoon totalling at only 1.1mm.

The wet conditions continue to the next day, with one-and-a-half hours of drizzle expected as cloudy skies continue.

The sun is predicted to make its first appearance of the break on October 26, with low-intensity sunshine peeking its way through the overcast sky as temperatures of 12℃ are recorded.

The rest of 2021 for Manchester is no different to a large majority of the UK, with the emerging winter season resulting in a chillier climate as the last two months unfold.

Experts Climate Data are estimating an average temperature of 6.7℃ and 4.4℃ in November and December respectively, as sunny days become less and less frequent.

There are an estimated 33 rainy days predicted from October to December, with a slow and gradual rise from 95mm of rainfall to 104mm.
