Hour-by-hour weather forecast for everywhere in Greater Manchester with a thunderstorm warning in effect

A weather warning for “disturbing” thunderstorms and potential flooding remained in force in Greater Manchester today – as the UK recorded its hottest day of the year so far.

The city of Manse was hit by extreme temperatures on Saturday, with the temperature rising to 32.7 degrees Celsius at London Heathrow Airport, a provisional record for 2023 according to the Met Office.

But on Sunday, meteorologists again warned of the risk of storms and heavy rain. The Met Office’s code yellow warning is due to come into force at 2pm today – Sunday – and remain in place until midnight. But forecasts show the possibility of rain from 10am on Sunday in many Greater Manchester neighbourhoods.

The UK has now experienced temperatures above 30C in September for the first time for six days. Previously, the highest temperature of the year was recorded on Thursday, with 32.6C recorded in Wesley, Surrey.

The UK’s Health Security Agency has issued a yellow heat health alert, meaning the effects of the weather are likely to be felt across the health service, with people over the age of 65 or those with respiratory or heart conditions most vulnerable. And pre-existing blood vessels are at greater risk.

Chris Wilding, the Environment Agency’s flood duty manager, has warned motorists not to drive through floodwater in the event of flash flooding.
