An upgraded snow warning has been issued across Manchester and the North of England for Bank Holiday Monday, meaning all plans we had of a lovely countryside walk have been well and truly SQUASHED.
Snow forecasts have been hanging over us like pigeons hovering over a spilled bag of chips for months now, and while some have materialised – ahem, Beast from the East – not all predictions have been 100% accurate.
(We can only hope)
A Met Office forecaster said: “Heavy snow is expected over parts of northern England, especially for high ground.”
The warning is in place for Manchester between 3am and midnight on Monday 2 April.
The Met Office added: “The snow is likely to be affecting southern parts of the warning area in the early hours of Monday spreading to all parts later on Monday morning.
“There is also the possibility of a couple of cm of wet snow gather locally at lower levels for a time, before snow turns back to rain. Strong winds are also expected which will likely lead to some drifting of snow on the high ground.”

Guess we’ll have to wait until tomorrow morning to make any solid Bank Holiday Monday plans…
