Yesterday saw flood alerts issued all across Greater Manchester, with Bury and Rossendale being worst hit as Storm Brian rained down on the North West.
We witnessed torrential downpours in and around the city centre as severe flood warnings remained in place for much of the day.
Rivers filling up across the region overnight and this morning…

Tonight’s predicted to stay dry (for the most part) with clear spells, although becoming increasingly cloudy with rain in west by dawn. Light winds and minimum temperature of 8 °C are expected.
Monday will witness a cloudy start to the working week with outbreaks of rain and maximum temperatures of 15 °C.
Looks like rain, rain and more rain folks!
And the Pope’s Catholic – go figure.
