There are severe weather warnings for the region today amid fears that Storm Aileen will bring gusts of 60mph and heavy rain.

But even though the Met Office has called it the first named storm of the season, Greater Manchester’s already had a bit of a beating from the weather.

This week has seen storms bring down trees, flash flooding and more – and they’re telling us that’s not even the start of it!

Here’s what the region’s been going through so far.

Ashton-under-Lyne saw some localised flooding.

Up by Daisy Nook in Oldham, there was a flooded road.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service says a school basement boiler room in Jacksons Lane, Stockport saw flooding of 4ft high.

Crews  were also called to Horsforth Lane, Greenfield to reports of flooding in a residential property.

Three crews attended a large flood in roadway in Stannybrook Road, Failsworth, while three more crews a large flood in Fern Grove next to the M66 bridge, where a driver was stuck in their car with rising water surrounding them.

There have been warnings issued to travellers ahead of strong winds and rain this week – with weather experts saying it might be the turn of Storm Aileen to slam the country.

The Met Office has warned of gales and downpours, after the road chaos which already hit Greater Manchester.

The Yellow Weather Warning that’s in force is warning of potentially 50mph to 60mph winds tonight – after a bright enough morning and temperatures of around 16C.

Transport for Greater Manchester says commuting could be tricky with the gusts and rain on their way – and have asked people to look at public transport instead of driving.
