Dan Holley, meteorologist from Weatherquest, says despite some cloudy skies today and over the weekend we'll be seeing sun again next week.

"There's no sign of any major heatwave in the high 20s happening anytime soon, but the average temperatures will still be remaining in the low 20s for now," he said.

"As we head into next week we might see temperatures creeping up by a degree each day and maybe getting to 25C by Wednesday.
