Misty in many areas, with hill and coastal fog. Quite warm and humid away from Atlantic coasts.

Maximum temperatures 17 to 23 Celsius, in light to moderate, south to southwest winds.

Tonight

Tonight will be cloudy and misty, with patches of rain and drizzle, but good dry intervals will develop in most areas.

Very mild and humid, with hill and coastal fog persisting.

Minimum temperatures 15 to 17 Celsius, in light south to southwest or variable breezes.
