More widespread rain is possible
A yellow warning of wind has been issued across Greater Manchester by the Met Office for weekend as a spell of very strong winds on Friday (7 December) could bring some disruption.
Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible, and some roads and bridges may close.
There is a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs, and a small chance that injuries and danger to life could occur from flying debris.
Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services.
The warning will be in place from 3am on Friday to midnight, which will also see heavy, blustery showers with a risk of gale force westerly winds for a time.
According to BBC Weather, Saturday will be breezy with frequent blustery showers or longer spells of rain, perhaps bringing an occasional rumble of thunder.
More widespread rain is possible for a time overnight, while Sunday will be drier and sunnier, although it will feel chilly with north-westerly winds.
Monday will remain cold, but fine and dry, with light winds and lots of sunshine.
