    Heaviest downpours we've had all winter here.  Looks so innocuous on the radar but it's had our name on it today, both in at work in Manchester and on the drive home back to Oldham.  Wet, wet, wet.... some flooding on the Mcr motorways.

    I feel it my fingers i feel it in my toes

    Got soaked right through this afternoon for about 15 minutes, didn't look much on the radar and it was more graupel than hail but it hammered down. Heard on local BBC radio that surface water is causing a problem on the motorways this evening.

    Yes I was down in Salford this afternoon and it was heavy showers throughout with hardly a gap between and I came across some flooding on the top part of the M60 around Prestwich.Back up towards home though, much less had fallen.

    wettest setup for certain areas, cheshire gap effect must have affected your area, noticed the winds were WNW today, giving a wetter day than frontal rain, or showers in a SW wind

    Hopefully looking at a dry night tonight rather than what seems like an eternity of listening to rain on the windows.

    Add to that some clear skies and a touch of frost and it would start of feel like that winter thing we sometimes get at this time of year.

    Drove back from ashton earlier and saw this orangy yellow hue over the hills it looked torrential..... Got back to glossop over mottram it was pretty drk n torrential.... Rained for two hours.... Very odd colour to the sky tough throughout....had lights on at 3pm.... Looking at models/forecasts lookslike next week is cold/cool but generally dry ie 0-3c highs and 0 to -4c at night....at least ot heavy rain.... Maybe even some sun :)

    Could do with clear skies tonight, maybe a chance of seeing the Northern Lights and it's not every day that is possible out our latitude.

    Would be nice..... Saw them in the isle of man in the 90's.....

    Only seen them once myself, more years ago than I want to remember when I was a kid.I did see a fantastic picture of them taken early last year only a couple of miles from here but both conditions and location were probably perfect and my northerly outlook is somewhat restricted by trees and a few houses.Might still have a look later though.

    Even if this easterly comes off it wont affect where i live anyway. The models are a joke its the same for the precip charts that shows where the precip might travel and i guarentee it always shows by the north west. As it gets nearer the time it shifts somewhere else. Give me a northly or north westly from a greeny high any day. Screw you easterly.

    Rant over

    Appologies

    Well I said it earlier the 18z is going to provide a few surprises. Amazing differences already, they are really, really struggling.

    Just looking forward to summer. This winter is a write off completely. Useless weather patterns, lasting for 5 months and then just looks like resetting. Snow? What's that?

    • Cool Showerfest continues for the next week. Hints of a change beyond that?

      With the jet stream close to the south and low pressure nearby over the next 7 days, expect showers or longer spells of rain over many areas, staying cool too, with temperatures below average. But hints of something drier and more settled arriving next weekend. View the full blog here
