Manchester Climate and Weather

In general, however, the weather in Manchester is mild, with sunny summers (June to August) and cold, wet winters (December to February). Snowfall is infrequent, but winter days can be frosty and clear.

Average summer temperatures range from 50F (1°C) to 69F (21C), while average winter temperatures range from 36F (2) to 45F (7C). The average temperature in January is around 39F (4C), while the average temperature in July is about 59F (15C).
