Is snow on the way? Your Saddleworth weather snapshot

That’s our first winter cold snap out of the way. Didn’t last long but a few sharp frosts under our belt. There are a few rumours knocking around about snow falling on Election Day……

Thursday: A chilly start. Atlantic winds return bringing thickening cloud from the west. Drizzle will develop as the afternoon progresses so a damp end to the day is likely. Milder and windy with 35mph gusts, especially later. Max 10°C

Friday: After a very mild night with temperatures in double-figures, a front will spread some patchy rain southeast. Showery conditions follow and it will turn cooler during the day. Max 11°C

Weekend: Saturday the better day.

Saturday: Dry and bright, then cloud thickening from the west into the afternoon with perhaps the odd shower. The breeze picking up later ahead of heavy rain overnight. Max 9°C

Sunday: Any early rain clearing to a day of blustery showers, some heavy. Windy. Max 10°C

colder from the N

Winds turning north or northwesterly later next week opening the gates to much colder air

Outlook: Monday looks dry with sunny spells, then unsettled again. Turning colder from midweek with a risk of some wintry showers, possibly giving a covering of snow on the hills.
