Come rain or shine? Your Saddleworth weather snapshot

BRRR – that was a cold spell of weather; well, it is winter after all.

We all saw some snow with several centimetres falling across the region last week but milder weather is now here.

Saturday night gave us the coldest night of the winter so far, with local temperatures of -11°C across the snow-covered fields.

Thursday, FEBRUARY 7: Breezy with rain followed by some scattered showers. Drier and brighter towards evening. Feeling cool. Max 7°C.

Friday: Cloudy with more general rain arriving on a freshening south-westerly wind. Milder. Max 9°C.

Weekend: Showery.

Saturday: Friday’s main rain clears to sunshine and hefty showers with hail and thunder possible. Windy with 35mph gusts. Max 8°C.

Sunday: Scattered showers easing and not as windy as Saturday. Brighter and drier towards the end of the day. Max 8°C.

Outlook: Drier with more settled conditions as high pressure builds from the southwest.

Temperatures slightly above average but frosty nights returning.

The clock is ticking for a Beast from the East, but do not forget, last year they arrived at the end of February and early March.
