Manchester covered in white after morning flurry
But it’s going to rain this afternoon
This morning, the heavens finally opened and dumped a whole load of snow in Manchester.
With forecasts predicting snow and sleet for a long time, yesterday’s prediction was finally correct as we’ve been blessed with a white blanket of cold stuff on our pavements this morning.
On a March morning, Manchester is seeing white everywhere with a yellow warning of snow.
Although Platt Fields and other urban sanctuaries are looking more beautiful thank ever with a sprinkling of the white stuff, the roads are already turning to dreaded grey slush thanks to the Magic Buses.
Sadly, the chances of building a snowman, or other inappropriately shaped snow sculptures, are limited as the forecast is for rain from 11am.
Very happy with the winter wonderland scenes in Fallowfield, third year Fia told The Tab: “I fucking love the snow.
“It’s also a semi-acceptable reason to skive off uni.”
Second year Kate didn’t have many positive things to say about the snow, she said: “I’m mega annoyed that I got attacked by icicles – it’s far too cold.”
