Snow and ice to follow Storm Ciara for next four days across Greater Manchester

Geograph

The bad weather will continue across Greater Manchester for the next four days with Met Office weather warnings in place until Wednesday.

A yellow 'snow and ice' warning has been established by the national weather service with temperatures dropping to as low as 1 degrees in the week.

This comes as Storm Ciara continues to batter the UK with flash foods happening in rural parts of the North West – causing chaos in towns such as Ramsbottom and Radcliffe.

According to the Met Office, snow showers and icy surfaces are likely to lead to further travel disruption, particularly over higher routes across across Greater Manchester.

This will continue until late Thursday, when the weather warnings stop and things begin to calm down. Hopefully.

The Environment Agency has also issued 31 flood warnings across Greater Manchester – with the most severe ones across Bolton, Rochdale and Bury.

Today's amber warning for wind will also stay in place until around 9pm tonight as the tail end of Storm Ciara wreaks one last bit of havoc in the region.

However, due to the damage the extreme conditions have already caused today, it's unlikely that travel on the roads or railways will be unaffected for the rest of the week – so plan your routes carefully.

Have you been affected by Storm Ciara? Do you have footage of the weather conditions in your area?
