Saturday will be wet, but there will be sunny spells at times and there could be thunderstorms in coastal areas. The temperature will be no higher than 18 Celsius in the south, cooler in the north.

Sunday will feel chilly, with the temperature dropping to no higher than 16 Celsius, but there will be some sunny spells.
