High pressure in control

Mainly settled and very warm conditions continue through Tuesday and Wednesday in southern and central regions, although an odd shower is possible. In the north thicker cloud may bring some patchy rain. Temperatures of 27C (81F) are possible in the south.

Guidance from computer models suggests high pressure will continue to bring a good deal of dry and warm weather through the rest of the week. There is a chance of it turning more changeable next weekend.
