On Tuesday there will be long spells of hazy summer sunshine through the day with top temperatures ranging from a warm 21 to 24 degrees in light southwest or variable winds.

It will be dry with clear spells on Tuesday night. Mist and fog will develop in places as winds fall light. Minimum temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees.
