WINSFORD and Middlewich will be hotter than the south of France this weekend.

That is according to the glorious forecast from the Met Office.

As of noon on Thursday, May 28, the forecaster is predicting a maximum temperature of 23 degrees Celsius in Winsford and Middlewich on Friday and uninterrupted sunshine.

That is set to be followed by highs of 22 degrees on Saturday and 23 degrees on Sunday, with just a bit of cloud cover expected to head our way on Sunday afternoon.

In contrast, Nice, on the south coast of France, is set for top temperatures of 21 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday according to the Met Office – and rain is expected on Friday and Sunday.

The Met Office says mid Cheshire folk can look forward to even more beautiful weather next week, as it predicts sunshine and highs of up to 24 degrees until Wednesday, June 3.

This is still Cheshire though, so do be prepared for a sudden change of heart from Mother Nature just in case.
