Indications are the smoke should clear for Wednesday with sunny skies, a high of 28 C and a low of 13 C.

More sun is in store for Thursday with a high of 29 C and a low of 14 C.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday should see a mix of sun and cloud, with temperatures falling back to normal highs for this time of year.
