On Friday it will be mainly fine with some clouds. Temperatures will rise to 29C inland, 25C in coastal areas and 20C in the higher mountains.

On Saturday, Sunday and Monday clear skies will alternate with some high clouds.

Temperatures are going to be a little higher than average for this time of the year.
