Isolated showers and rising temperatures expected

Weak low pressure influence and dust in the atmosphere set the tone for the coming days

A weak low-pressure system is affecting the region, bringing changes to the weather conditions. Today, we can expect mostly clear skies with occasional low clouds in certain areas. As we move into the midday hours and beyond, cloud cover will increase locally, leading to isolated showers. In mountainous and inland regions, there is a chance of brief, isolated thunderstorms. Winds will start off light and variable, around 3 Beaufort, but will gradually shift to a southwest to northwest direction, remaining light to moderate at around 3 to 4 Beaufort. The sea will be generally calm to slightly rough. Temperature-wise, inland areas will reach around 31 degrees Celsius, coastal regions will see temperatures around 27 degrees Celsius, and higher mountains will experience temperatures around 20 degrees Celsius.

Tonight, we can expect mostly clear conditions. However, during the morning hours, some areas may experience localized fog or low clouds. Winds will initially blow from the southwest to northwest, light to locally moderate at 3 to 4 Beaufort, soon transitioning to mainly northwest to northeast, and on the northern coast, southeast, remaining light at 3 Beaufort. The sea will maintain a calm to slightly rough state. Overnight temperatures will drop to around 18 degrees Celsius inland and on the coast, while the higher mountains will see temperatures around 13 degrees Celsius.

Moving into Wednesday, the weather will be predominantly clear, although intermittent high clouds may make an appearance.

As we approach Thursday and Friday, expect periods of increasing medium to high clouds, which could bring isolated, mainly light showers. Some of these showers may be accompanied by thunderstorms.

Temperatures will gradually rise through Friday, reaching near or slightly above the typical averages for this season.
