TODAY - Wednesday 23rd May

Today will be dry and mainly sunny, with the last of the fog lifting quickly. Top temperatures generally between 19 and 22 C., with light easterly or variable breezes. But fresher along parts of the east and south coasts, with values of 15 to 17 C., due to onshore sea breezes.

TONIGHT - Wednesday 23rd May

Dry tonight with clear skies. Lowest temperatures of 5 to 8 C., in little or no wind. But some low cloud and fog may develop along parts of the Atlantic Seaboard, around dawn.

TOMORROW - Thursday 24th May

A mostly sunny start to Thursday, but the sunshine is likely to turn rather hazy in places in the afternoon, when some showers are likely to break out. Warm in sunshine, with highs of 20 to 22 C., but lower and feeling fresher in some coastal districts due to onshore sea breezes, otherwise winds light to moderate northeast to northerly.

National Outlook

Any showers will die out on Thursday night and lowest temperatures will be 9 to 12 degrees.

Friday will be another generally dry, warm and sunny day with just the chance of a shower in the east and south. Highest temperatures 17 to 22 degrees, but the moderate northerly breezes will keep it cooler on exposed coasts.

Saturday will be warm also and it will become humid with highs of 20 to 22 degrees, but about 16 or 17 degrees at best in eastern coastal areas due to a moderate or fresh onshore breeze. Some sea fog may drift in as well on east coasts. Most places will be dry again with sunny spells, with just the chance of a few showers in the east and south. On Saturday night there is a greater chance of a few heavy and thundery showers and it will be a close night.

It will continue humid and warm or very warm on Sunday and Monday with hazy sunshine and temperatures in the low to mid-twenties in mostly moderate easterly breezes. Many places will be dry but some thundery outbreaks are likely to occur and nights will be muggy.
