The weather is set to continue to be humid and mild, with heavy or thundery showers during the week before falling back to average for this time of year heading into the weekend, with showers becoming lighter and more scattered.

Conditions will be widely sunny, dry, humid and very warm today with top temperatures of 22 to 27 degrees.

Meanwhile, Wednesday will also be warm and humid with occasional scattered showers and sunny spells. Highest temperatures will reach between 20 and 24 degrees.

However, things are set to take a turn weather-wise on Thursday with a day of quite widespread heavy showers, and the potential for isolated thunderstorms.

Heavy downpours will also bring the risk of spot flooding as temperatures will remain between 17 and 22 degrees.

Friday will see more scattered showers with occasional bright or sunny spells and highest temperatures of 16 to 20 or 21 degrees.

Conditions will pick up slightly again on Saturday with a mix of scattered showers and some bright or sunny periods and temperatures of between 15 and 18 degrees.
