Next Week
22° 24° 26° 25° 25° 23° 22° 24°
Very warm this week with little rainfall (just the chance of showers later in the week). Monday will be another warm close day with some sunny spells. Even warmer for Tuesday and Wednesday (in the mid 20s). It will continue very warm on Thursday and Friday but there is the chance of some thundery showers being triggered off by the heat. A small change then over the weekend as winds swing more around to the north. It is likely to be dry though albeit slightly cooler. The outlook for next week is for high pressure to stay close by, giving us fine, dry weather.
