It will go down slightly to 35 degrees on Monday (still feels like 39), with some more respite on Tuesday as 32 degrees are then forecast.

The sea temperature, for those who will take a dip, will be 23 degrees.

People should avoid, as much as possible, staying in the sun during the hotter hours. One should also drink lots of water and wear light clothing.
