Temperatures will cool down from Wednesday as more cooler weather from the Atlantic returns, which could bring the risk of thundery showers.
Chief Meteorologist Dan Suri said “High pressure is dominating our weather bringing warm, humid air from the tropical Atlantic resulting in these high temperatures and sunny conditions over the coming days”.
“Sea breezes will help keep some of our coastline refreshingly cooler”.
