Under his presidency he founded Weather, a monthly magazine aimed at making current developments in meteorology available to a wider public. Manley published several articles in Weather and since his death, a number of pieces about him; his work and archives have appeared in the magazine. Manley also wrote for the Manchester Guardian. His first article, published in December 1945, ‘The wettest place’, focused on Seathwaite in the Lake District. Another of his articles, published in August 1954, was rather optimistically-titled ‘The summer of 1954: not quite the worst’! Meanwhile Manley’s book, ‘Climate and the British Scene’, published in 1952 is seen as one of his greatest contributions to British climatology. It was written in a popular, non-academic style and examines the role of the British climate in shaping the landscape and its people.
