Hour-by-hour weather forecast for Manchester on Wednesday as heavy rain is expected and the Met Office warning is in place

The glorious and much-needed sunny spell is forecast to end – temporarily – with heavy rain on Wednesday, with a Met Office weather warning for Greater Manchester.

The city region is bracing for heavy rain from Wednesday, before conditions hopefully turn drier over the weekend. Heavy rain is forecast for much of Wednesday, beginning in the early hours of tomorrow morning.

A code yellow warning from the Met Office covers all parts of Greater Manchester just after midnight and will remain in place until 6am on Thursday.

“Heavy rain may cause some flooding and travel disruption,” it said, adding that some communities “may be blocked by flooded roads.” Driving conditions are expected to be “difficult” due to spray and flooding, with the chance of road closures.

The Met Office warning says there is “a chance” of flooding and damage to buildings, with “fast-flowing or deep flood waters” also in places. “Train and bus service delays or cancellations are possible,” the warning added.

There are currently no warnings in place for Greater Manchester on Friday or over the weekend until Monday. The Met Office said: “An area of ​​low pressure will approach the UK from the east on Wednesday, bringing heavy and in places prolonged rain. Close tracking of the low pressure will determine how far west in the UK the heavy rain will be. we will arrive.”

Chief Meteorologist Andy Page said: “The area of ​​low pressure developing over the southern North Sea will push a band of heavy rain north and west across the UK.

“Areas exposed to strengthening northerly winds are most likely to see the highest rainfall amounts, although the exact details of the path of the fall, and therefore where we might see the highest rainfall totals, remain uncertain. Warnings will likely be updated as more details emerge. and therefore it is important that people pay attention to the forecast.”

It is thought that many places could see 30-40mm of rain, while a few areas may receive 60-80mm. There’s also a small chance that a few high-altitude areas could see much higher totals on the order of 150mm.
