Question regarding making and storeing salt water

So we have had that much rain here (Qld Australia) that the river mouth that I normally get my water from had nothing but fresh water in it. So I was forced to get the salt and make my own.

I live in a small unit and there is not room for storing the 25ltr drums inside.

My question is, Can I leave them outside for a couple of days to let the water sit and then add it to my tank? Is there anything wrong with hitting it with direct sunlight for a few hours a day? It's mostly shadey, but still hot.

Thanks in advance
