Will be set for a very warm night after a 37 degree day. Temps shouldn't drop below 25 degrees until the early hours of the morning. And there'll likely be some cloud around.
Will cool down after a warm day, with cloud around too, mainly high cloud.
Is set for a cool wind change overnight, which should bring some showers. At the moment this is expected AFTER midnight.
Will stay hot overnight after a near 40 degree day!
Should be dry and clear, but gusty, strong winds might cause some firework veering!
Might possibly see a storm among the exploding gun powder.
Should have some cloud about and south-easterly winds, but hopefully these won't dampen the spirit of entering a brand new year.
