Winds will be mainly westerly to southwesterly, moderate to strong, force four to five and in the afternoon, strong force five to six in south, southwesterly and eastern areas, over moderate seas.

Fine skies initially this evening, but turning increasingly overcast in western and northern areas as well as over the mountains, likely to bring isolated light showers. Winds will be westerly to southwesterly, light to moderate force three to four and in certain areas, moderate force four.

Seas will be slight in southern and eastern coastal regions and moderate in the rest of the coastal areas. Temperatures will drop around 21 degrees Celsius inland, 22 in southern and eastern coastal regions, 23 in the west and north and 15 over the mountains.

The pattern of isolated showers will continue tomorrow, mainly across the west and north, as well as the mountains, with isolated showers and possibly a storm in the north and east from noon onwards.

Wednesday will see a rise in temperatures over the August average.
