A wintry blast of snow, ice and strong winds is set to hit over the weekend.
The Met Office has issued severe weather warnings across the region.
Forecasters predict gusts of up to 70mph. The high winds are causing health and safety problems for organisations.
The National Trust has decided to close Lyme Park at Disley tomorrow for safety reasons after reports that gusts of more than 55mph will rip through the park.
The planned 5k Parkrun event and a Roaring Twenties exhibition has been cancelled for the day too.
A spokesman said generally Lyme Park closes on one or two days during winter due to adverse weather.
The spokesman said: “Lyme’s head ranger and his team will carry out an inspection of the park and gardens to check damage to trees, fencing and parkland.
“As wind speeds are set to drop overnight it’s anticipated the park will reopen on Sunday but visitors should check the website.
“All properties have a daily inspection in high winds.
“Lyme Park is exposed up on the edge of the Peak District so picks up the winds to a greater degree.”
The spokesman said that Quarry Bank Mill in Styal was set to remain open but winds would be monitored and Dunham Massey would open at 10am instead of 8am for last minute inspections.
