Temperatures are first set to peak at around 16°C in the late afternoon and early evening today, before the warmer weather still is ushered for tomorrow and Wednesday.
Tomorrow will be a largely dry start, with sunny spells in the south of Greater Manchester.
While it could be a touch more on the cloudy side in the north of the region through the morning however, there will be plenty of sunny spells once the afternoon rolls around, with a maximum temperature of 21°C.
On Wednesday, the sunny spells will continue through the morning, but increasing cloud cover and patchy rain will come later on.
It will still be warm though, with highs of 17°C expected in the late afternoon.
And if the change in weather and temperature from the previous weekend to the start of this new week isn’t shocking enough as it is for the time of year, it’s only set to continue changing as we head into the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend.
By Thursday and Good Friday, the forecast predicts that it will remain dry, but things will turn cloudier and colder, with the risk of an overnight frost and highs of around 12°C.
The long range forecast for Saturday and Easter Sunday predicts widely-fine conditions across Greater Manchester, with plenty of dry weather and sunny spells for most and temperatures not expected to exceed 12°C, although some areas may see sporadic showers.
And then what’s in store for Greater Manchester the week after the Bank Holiday? Well, snow apparently.
As mad as it sounds after a week of warm temperatures, the Met Office is predicting that it will likely turn colder and more unsettled in the north by the start of the following week, with even all areas of the UK likely to see spells of rain and stronger winds.
Some wintry showers are possible too and snow may even settle on higher ground.
Get those BBQs out while you can then.

Video of Chelsea fan claiming ‘Haaland will not live up to the expectation’ comes back to bite him
A video of a Chelsea supporter expressing his doubts over whether Manchester City striker Erling Haaland will “live up to the expectation” is doing the rounds again and it’s absolutely priceless.
Blues fan and YouTuber Rory Jennings appeared on Sky Sport’s Saturday Social show back in August, just a couple of months after City signed the frightening forward from German side Borussia Dortmund.
Though it went viral at the time, with most fans finding his assumption that Haaland stood no chance of winning the golden boot laughable, it’s enjoying an even more hilarious half-life now the Norwegian has put up the kind of numbers he has.
Jennings said at the time that he was “so bored” of the discussion and excitement, insisting that the 22-year-old striker “isn’t the player everyone thinks he is” and to suggest he could win the personal accolade in his debut season was “outrageous”.
An often divisive commentator and content creator who regularly appears on ‘True Geordie’s watchalong show, The Kick Off (where he has also had numerous viral moments), he even went on to say that the mere notion was “disrespectful” to players like Harry Kane and Mo Salah.
Rubbishing the possibility as a “ridiculous achievement”, he simply declared that Haaland “isn’t going to do it”. Well, this is awkward…
Not only is City’s new number nine already the top scorer in the Premier League with 14 but he also has double the amount of the second highest-scorer in Harry Kane after just eight games. Ridiculous indeed, Rory.
Moreover, despite Jennings claiming that he is “wasteful” in front of goal at times and lacks the “build-up play” to play in Pep Guardiola’s side, Haaland has the most efficient strike rate of any player in Europe right now, averaging 1.89 goals per 90 minutes in the league alone.
Oh, and he’s also chipped in with three assists on top of that.
It’s safe to say that Rory received a fair bit of grief after his bold claim, to the point that even he had to hold his hands up and record an ‘apology’ video.
We can only applaud journalist and co-host Ade Oladipo for being less smug than we would have been in this situation.
To make things even more hilarious, Haaland had scored six when he made this video around two months ago. He is now one goal away from the YouTuber’s initial prediction of 15 in the league and has already netted 17 in all competitions. Yikes.
City are currently second in the league with a whopping goal difference of +20 — nearly three-quarters of you can basically credit to just Haaland.
Don’t think you’ll find anyone tipping Kane, Salah or Son for the golden boot now, do you?
Phil Foden’s bond with elderly City fan with dementia only gets more wholesome
Among the City fans flying high after the Manchester derby, 84-year-old Barry Carr was undoubtedly one those most bowled over on the day, as he was once again invited to Phil Foden‘s box to watch the game.
As you can see, Barry was invited back to watch the derby and treated to a 6-3 blockbuster, where he got to spend more time with Foden as well as meet ex-player turned pundit, Micah Richards.
One of our favourite bits is him referring to Erling Haaland as “the big one”. You’re not wrong there, Barry!
The lifelong fan City fan was over the moon with the result and even more excited when he realised his favourite Foden had netted a hattrick against against their historic rivals.
Following the game, the two shared a lovely embrace and spoke about the game, with Foden describing his game as a “dream come true”. We dare say Barry felt the same.
We’re not crying, you are…
While he struggles with his memory, most of his years spent watching City vs United would have been quite different, as the blue half of Manchester were long-considered ‘the noisy neighbours’. Safe to say things have changed significantly over the past decade.
