Daytime temperatures may not be as high in coastal areas due to sea breezes, it adds.
But it warns of heat stress, especially for the more vulnerable members of the population, plus a high solar UV index and a risk of water-related incidents as people no doubt swim outside during the hot spell.
The warning comes into place at noon on Thursday and ends at 6am on Sunday.
