We survived Storm Helene, which hit Manchester earlier this week bringing with it 70mph winds and heavy rain. Now, as Storm Ali barrels towards the UK The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for heavy rain across the North West, including parts of Greater Manchester.

The warning will be in place from 4am until 10pm tomorrow (September 20), but the office has warned of the potential for very strong winds on Thursday evening and overnight into Friday morning.

A spokesman for The Met Office said there could be a chance of ‘injuries and danger to life’ as the wind could cause damage to buildings, such as tiles blowing from roofs or falling trees and branches. Bus and train services may also be affected and spray and flooding on roads could cause journeys to take longer the spokesman said.
