The forecaster said Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be very warm or hot, with highs generally between 27C and 29C.

It is warm at night with temperatures generally remaining above 15°C, although daytime temperatures may not be as high in coastal areas due to sea breezes.

There is also a high solar UV index and an increased risk of water-related incidents as people flock to the water to cool off.
