Greater Manchester set for glorious sunshine this weekend

By Ellie Kemp

After an assortment of weather this week, Greater Manchester will be warming up in time for a glorious weekend. Sunny spells will break out over Thursday (12 May) and Friday, with the clouds mostly disappearing on Saturday, making way for highs of almost 20C.

But the clouds will return on Sunday - so to make the most of this week's sunny weather, Saturday is the day to get yourself out and about. Cloud will dominate the sky today (Thursday), but conditions will remain dry. It will be 'breezy' but 'pleasantly warm in the sunshine' with a maximum temperature of 16C, according to the Met Office.

'Showery outbreaks of rain' threaten to fall in some areas of the north west this evening, but Greater Manchester is avoiding those for now.

'Brisk winds' will be helping to keep conditions on the mild side, with temperatures dropping just below double digits at 9C over night. Another largely cloudy day is forecast in Greater Manchester on Friday, but sunny intervals can be expected from 11am until the early evening.

It will be slightly warmer than today, with the temperature peaking at 18C from around 2pm into the early evening. But the Met Office warms it will still be breezy in some places. Mancunians will be waking up to a sunny start on Saturday, with sunny intervals - but mostly uninterrupted sunshine - forecast for the day.

Temperatures will stretch to a lovely 19C and the UV rating will hit high levels, so don't forget your suncream. Some clouds will return overnight, with a minimum overnight temperature of 12C.

Sunday will be a lot cloudier, but the heat will still be felt with temperatures topping 18C. Some warm, sunny spells might make their way through the clouds too. And if you suffer from hay fever, then beware as the pollen count is set to stay at 'high' throughout the rest of the week.
