Okay, i have lived up in Manchester my whole life. It does seem to be dull and rain a lot in Manchester, whenever i come back here it always seems to be raining.
But then it's less miserable than Stoke, that seems to be the dullest, greyest place i have ever been to. Manchester is okay, when it is sunny, Which can be quite a lot in summer, it is lovely. But the weather is not too nice, and obviously a few degrees collere than the south of the country.

Not overly different to the rest of England. Sometimes it's colder or wetter than down south but nothing drastic

Since living in Manchester I have noticed the weather is a lot worse than it was when I used to live in Shrewsbury. In fact, most of the time I think it is awful. But I can only speak for the winter months. Now that Spring is here, it really is lovely.

Why is this in the Manchester section? Surely this is relevant to all Manc universities? - Thread Moved.

Black actually Manchester gets a lot less rainfall than a lot of places in the far South West. Because Manchester is well sheltered and is a big city in the summer it can often be one of the hottest places in the country, it is not that unusual for it to hit 30c.

Yep, Plymouth has more rain than Manchester, as does Torquay. Even nearby Leeds has more rain and less sun than Manchester!

Internationally, apparently Hong Kong, Kingston (Jamaica), Perth (Australia) and Madrid have more rain than Manchester.

New York also has exactly twice the rainfall as Manchester

I think the problem with Manchester is it does get frequent rainfall so it can seem like it is always raining but you hardly ever get soaked.

Also at this time of year most the country will get rainfall, in July/August we can go for a good month without a drop of rain.

The South West does get more sun shine though, well it gets more of everything.

Them Pennines shelter us from wind though so we can't have it both ways

I have noticed it rains less in Chorlton than it does in Manchester just 4 miles away. Stockport is also a lot more rainy too.

The reason why Manchester seems wet a lot of the time is because although the rainfall is no more than places like Madrid, Rome, New York etc, it takes longer to fall because of the damp atmosphere (hence the reason why the cotton industry took off there during the industrial revolution).

So, rainfall isn't anything huge, but hours of raining probably are a bit more than other places in the UK. I live in Plymouth when not in Manchester, and it certainly seems drier there despite it actually receiving more rainfall.
