On Monday and Tuesday, there will be an even further increase in temperatures and the weather will be unseasonably hot in most parts of the country.

 

The heatwave is expected to ease slightly on Wednesday - especially along the coastal plain - but it will remain unusually hot and dry, which will be most noticeable in inland areas.
