Snow joke: Oldhamers prepare to grit and bear it
Date published: 18 January 2013
OLDHAMERS were keeping their fingers crossed the predicted snow forecast for today was going to skirt the region.
Much of the UK woke up to a thick covering of snow while Oldham suffered only a light dusting.
Temperatures barely got above freezing in Oldham yesterday, a position set to continue all weekend.
Gritters have been out in force and the Highways Agency is advising motorists to check weather forecasts before travelling.
Chronicle weatherman Damian Rodgers had better news for the weekend — he believes Oldham will be cold but dry.
But he added: “But I would expect to see snow on Monday or Tuesday.”
