Hot weather sticks around as August ends

Subtle signs of the end of summer are anticipated to make themselves felt from Thursday but the warm weather will continue.

According to the Meteorological Department’s official forecast for the day, although the weather will be generally fine, there will be increased cloud cover in some mountain and inland areas from the afternoon onwards.

This heavier cloud cover may lead to isolated showers and even storms but these, if they occur at all, will be limited to only some mountain and inland areas.

More of the same is expected for Friday, the first day of September, while temperatures are anticipated to rise slightly over the weekend, the forecast says.
