Snow Expected To Arrive In Manchester As Early As Tomorrow
Winter has arrived...
If you want to catch a glimpse of the first snowfall of the winter in Greater Manchester you best get a spot next to the window by Tuesday evening.
Weather experts are predicting that over five inches of snow could be on its way to the region over the next few days.
According to the Manchester Evening News, a spokesman for the Met Office said:
“A band of rain spreading slowly in will turn to snow as it encounters cold air.
“Whilst this will be mainly on high ground, heavier bursts could easily bring snow down to low levels.
“Overnight into Wednesday morning, there are concerns that heavier bursts could bring snow more widely down to low levels over parts of eastern England, though at this stage there is low confidence.”
He went on to warn drivers to expect dangerous conditions on Tuesday and Wednesday:
“Overnight Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning, as snow peters out over Scotland, there is the potential for snow to settle to low levels over parts of Yorkshire and down into the northeast Midlands, though with a good deal of uncertainty about this.
“Please be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions in some areas.”
With just under seven weeks until Santa comes down the chimney, it looks like the early snowfall could have a detrimental effects for those dreaming of a White Christmas.
Stay safe, Manchester!
