A cold, cloudy but largely dry day. Road surfaces will be close to or just below zero in the early evening to the north and east side of Oldham. Cloud will then thicken through the evening bringing some outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow, and milder temperatures. However they may be a period where precipitation will be falling on to frozen surfaces causing some patches of ice and temporary accumulations of snow. By midnight any wintry precipitation should have turned back to rain and road surface temperatures will have recovered back above zero, melting any snow and ice. It will become drier later in the night but remain rather cloudy, with some hill fog.
