Weather forecast for Greater Manchester tonight and into Tuesday

Greater Manchester will be hit by further rain tonight and tomorrow – Tuesday.

But according to Met Office forecasts, showers are expected to be far lighter than the torrential downpours that whipped the region Sunday and Monday.

Forecast people predict patches with more heavy rainfall in the evening and early evening, followed by less chance of rain during the night.

Tuesday morning should start dry – with only 10 and five percent chances of rain from kl.

The Met Office said of Greater Manchester: “Additional showers tonight and overnight, though also some clear periods, especially inland.

“Still quite windy, especially towards the coast, and getting cool in well-protected places inland.”

Low temperatures of 2C are expected.

A flood alert was previously issued covering parts of Rochdale, Oldham, Bolton and Bury and remains in force.

A number of roads were also closed due to flooding across Greater Manchester – including two in Oldham, after heavy rains over the region saw rivers burst their banks.

The Environmental Protection Agency has warned that the water level on the River Irwell is rising after heavy rains.

And it can lead to flooding on low-lying roads and land.

Residents are being warned that flooding is possible around the rivers Beal, Roch and Croal and at Limy Water.

Other areas that may be affected include Farnworth, Whitefield, Little Lever, Radcliffe, Heywood and Whitworth.

The warnings cover the lower and upper River Irwell catchment areas.
