Manchester weather on Sunday 16th June: How will the weather look like during the India vs Pakistan match at Manchester
The Weather Gods are showing no signs of mercy at the World Cup venue in England and Wales as four matches so far have been washed off due to rain. And we are only in the second week of the one-and-a-half month long tournament.
With this, England and Wales have a new record under their name- for the being the venue with most abandoned World Cup matches ever, and believe you me, there are more games as such yet to surface. We have had only nine World Cup matches been abandoned so far (due to rain or without it) in the tournament history which commenced way back in 1975 (including 4 in the ongoing one).
India vs Pakistan
There are a few rivalries which the Cricket fans of the involved nations eagerly wait for due to myriad reasons- for establishing their supremacy over the other, for the worst possible swears to be hurled at each other, for trolls and memes in this age of information and technology etc etc.
And one will for sure, find all of the aforementioned during an India vs Pakistan Cricket match. And a World Cup match between the two results in an overdose of the already existing spice.
Thus, is such a case, the last thing these fans in particular, and the Cricketing fraternity in general would want is an India vs Pakistan World Cup match being washed off due to rain.
Manchester weather on Sunday 16th June
Now, what might come as a grey news just like the clouds hovering over the players’ heads in majority of the matches so far, the forecast for Sunday (especially) is not good at all.
While the Sun has made an appearance even a tad on Friday and Saturday, on June 16 (Sunday) it is going to be all cloudy with no chances of sunlight at all throughout the day.
While there’s 59% chances of rain during the day time, it increases to 62% during the night. But, these are only the predicted chances. Although there’s minimal chances of sunshine, the chances of the Sun God making an appearance cannot be ruled out.
A majority of showers are expected during the night, while a shower is expected at 12 pm local time.
All-in-all the pinpoint precise forecast for Sunday at Manchester is- mostly cloudy, spotty showers. But that’s the thing about forecasts. Three days ago, the forecasts predicted a drastic drop to mere 25% rainfall at night for the match venue on June 16.
Thus, as ardent supporters of the beautiful game of Cricket, the least we can do is to look at the brighter side of things, and the maximum we can do is to keep our fingers crossed, if at all you all think that really works!
Weather not looking too bad for sundays clash #INDvsPAK.
I live close to Manchester and it looks like we’ll get in a full game unless something drastic happens.
