Saddleworth weather for the Easter bank holiday weekend

Typical. The decent weather continued this week as has the ‘lockdown’.

It’s been very dry since we were limited on outdoor activities and even after all of the rain in the previous months, our gardens could do with a shower or two.


Thursday: A misty start then warm sunny spells developing. The warmth could well develop a shower or two, mostly towards the Pennines and pleasantly warm. Max 18°C

Good Friday: Mostly cloudy with a few bright spells and still warm. Becoming breezy and towards evening some showers could again break out, this time from the south-west. Max 18°C

Weekend: Eventually cooler with some rain.

Saturday: UPDATED: Looks like we sneak another warm day with a cloudy start followed by sunny spells. Max 19°C

Sunday: Not looking too bad actually. Rain should remain away until later in the day, so although it is cooler there should be some pleasant sunny spells around. Max 14°C

Outlook: Looks like high pressure will build back in from the north. This will introduce some cool air for a day or so, and some chilly nights. As the week progresses becoming warmer. Plenty of dry weather on the cards too. We really are now well and truly in a dry spell.
