Lots of dry weather on the way

Date published: 07 April 2021

Temperatures across Oldham are set to rise later this week as the Arctic air - which spread sub-zero temperatures, a biting wind-chill and snow showers across the region yesterday (Tuesday) – moves on.

Maximum temperatures could rise to 10°C again by tomorrow (Thursday) after some patchy rain and hill sleet to start.

Some showers could follow into the afternoon and there will be plenty of cloud as it will feel milder.

On Friday a cold front will push some patchy rain through during the morning, then it is set to be a much-improved afternoon with sunny spells.

It will be cooler, with maximum temperatures of 8°C.

The coming weekend will remain settled, but still with below average temperatures for the time of year, hovering around the 8°C mark again.

According to @ChadWeather on Twitter: “There’s a lot of dry weather to come, which is great news, but patchy frost at night.

“There will be sunny spells by day, with temperatures slowly recovering into double-digits.

“UV levels are now approaching four, so any lengthy sunny spells means you can start to work on your tan.”
