“The early morning mist will dissolve away to leave another fine and dry day with some lengthy spells of sunshine and temperatures once again climbing rapidly to around 28C.

“As the day wears on the breeze will tend to swing round from the south-east. We will have another warm and humid night with lows falling no lower than 17C.”

Although Thursday will start off dry, there will be the potential for some heavy and thundery downpours during the course of the afternoon.
