Greater Manchester is set for a mixed week of weather from tomorrow (August 2).
However, if you’re planning to take your children for a fun-filled day out in the region, it might be best to do so before Thursday.
And, as the latter half of the week becomes the weekend, we can expect storms to dampen any summer plans.
On Monday, the Met Office says Manchester will see plenty of cloud — but highs of 19°C, making it ideal conditions for a trip into the city without your kids getting too hot and flustered.

The sun will shine brightly on Tuesday morning, leading to highs of 20°C in the afternoon.
A similar picture is forecast for Wednesday, which like the day before sees roughly a 10 percent chance of rain.
However, things take a turn for the worse on Thursday.
