A weather question - I KNOW!! Conditions 5/4/12

A quick question please.

What is the weather like in Manchester today (Thursday 5th April 2012).

My Mum is flying over later today and all we can see is pictures of deep deep snow but I'm sure the reality is somewhat different. She will be staying in the city. Should I anticipate any problems?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

It's a lovely day. A bit nippy, but plenty of sun and no sign of rain. She will have no problems in the city centre.

The snow was mainly to the east of The City on The Pennines.

Good luck!

Thanks, thats absolutely wonderful. I appreciate your help.

Meanwhile the flights between Manchester and Shannon are delayed. The flight due into Shannon at 10.15am is now due at 15.30. Already Manchester Airport are flagging her flight as arriving in an hour late.

Could be an interesting evening :o)

I'm a few miles from the airport and it is bright & sunny here though a bit chill, as it has been most of the day. We saw a few snowflakes yesterday, but nothing much.

Hope by now she's arrived safely!

Up above east Manchester, on the edge of the Pennines we had a blizzard resulting in 2 inches of snow yesterday, but most of it has now melted in the glorious sunshine of today!! Out towards the airport it is now a lovely sunny evening, although it has been a very chilly day.
