BOLTON might be basking in a mini-heatwave today but the town is certainly looking its autumnal best.

Photographer Gus Sivyer was out and about in Bolton capturing these fabulous shots of glorious autumn while the sun was shining this week.

Temperatures are set to hit highs of 22 degrees todays - rivalling the likes of Madrid, Athens and Sydney - but the unseasonably warm weather could be short lived.

Forecasters have predicted more unsettled weather towards the end of the week.

By tomorrow, while temperatures are expected to stay around 19 degrees, forecasters are warning of a mix of rain and cloud.

Looking ahead, the Met Office says there is an increasing chance that the weather will turn more settled as high pressure re-establishes.

Temperatures are expected to return to their seasonal norms by November.
