Showers will pick up on Saturday as heavy cloud blankets the country, particularly on the coast and in northern areas where rain is expected into the evening.
Moderately strong winds will keep temperatures cool but pick up dust, causing slight haze. Wind speeds will vary between 20 and 35 kph, peaking at 45 kph over the sea - which will be moderate to rough.
Sunday will bear the brunt of the heaviest rain expected over the next few days with forecasters warning of "unstable weather".
Heavy cloud will gather in scattered areas across the country as reasonably strong winds whip up dust at times.
