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.

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.”
