This Is Lancashire: Shoppers enjoying the sun in Victoria Square Shoppers enjoying the sun in Victoria Square

BOLTON is set to bask in a spring heatwave as experts say temperatures may rocket up to 18C by next week.

The balmy conditions are nearly double the average temperatures for the North West at this time of year.

Conditions have improved over the past week, but temperatures have remained quite low despite longer periods of sunshine.

Some rainy weather could persist until the weekend, but temperatures will be considerably warmer on Saturday and Sunday.

The 9.8C average temperature for March is set to be dwarfed by the high of 18C forecast for next Thursday.

A Met Office spokesman said a good start to March was forecast, with higher than average temperatures for the North West.

Temperatures could reach 16C as early as Monday, with next week set to bring sustained sunny and dry weather.

After a mild night on Wednesday, the showers are expected to return on Thursday and Friday.

yeah ok, will believe it when it happens. Think these "so called experts" reports that Bolton would be covered in up to 5 - 10 cm of snow about a month ago and we are still waiting for that. !

Because Climatologically Spring started on march 1st, Astronomically it is March 20th,seeing this article is a weather forecast then they are correct (but not about the weather).

Great, this means that every 'Chav' in Bolton will display their impropriety in bucket loads and treat us all to the sight of their legs, necks, shoulders and other body parts that have been tattooed with the names of their unfortunate children that they christened ‘Kayden or Teagan.’ If this isn’t bad enough we will have to suffer the ‘warm spell’ by having to listen to the obligatory outdoors stereo blasting horrible music at full volume whilst these people indulge in a drunken orgy of barbecued burgers, drink, singing, shouting, fighting and other noisy alcohol fuelled antics. Of course little Kayden will also wreak havoc by being allowed to run free through the neighbourhood vandalising, screaming and causing as much mayhem as he can whilst safe in the knowledge that his parent(s) are drunk and there will be no repercussions for his unsociable actions. I think I’ll nip out and stock up on earplugs and tranquillisers in readiness.

The above photo must have been taken some years back when the town hall steps were stone colored. They are now a lovely shade of moss green as well as the green Lions each side !!.
