And now for some good news.

We’ve had some pretty extreme weather this summer. Temperatures well into the 30s, some torrential storms and even a mini-tornado.

It may still be August but there’s definitely a chill in the air. But just when you thought we’d seen the last of the summer weather and were thinking about switching the heating on and putting the barbie away, there’s some good news. We’re going to see some sunshine after the rain.

The Met Office forecast for the next few days is for sunny, warm weather. Nothing like the heatwave we had last month when temperatures were well into the 30s, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

The forecast for Manchester is for sunny spells and showers, with temperatures peaking at a very pleasant 23° on Friday, just in time for the bank holiday weekend.

But the best news of all is that the forecast for the weekend is sunny and dry – normal weather for the time of year, rather than the weather on steroids we’ve had for the last few weeks.

So put that cardy back in the drawer, get the suncream out and make the most of the fine weather. You never know when we’re going to see some again. Because the only thing that’s predictable about the weather these days is its unpredictability.

What's on your mind?
