Current weather conditions here

weather reportIt's not nearly as windy as yesterday. After a pleasant night, it's starting to warm up quickly towards an expected high of 35C. Temperature at 0845am is 26C, humidity reading 44%. Clear sky.

So, 35C today, tonight could fall as low as 20C. It's still the very dry air from the northg so you won't be sweating if you can open a window.

It could be a little cooler tomorrow, at only 31C, then Friday back up to 34C.

 After that temperatures will remain in the high 30's for a  few days. The outlook for this time next week is for 41C, so plan for a siesta in a suitable bar I should think.

That's my last on the spot report for a while as I am soon off to enjoy the delights of summer in Sussex, Kent and south-west France. I hope someone else can poke their head out of the window to tell people what it's like here.

Taking care in the Sun

As can be observed, during Summer, the temperature in the Algarve is very high (it can go over 40ºC/100ºF exceptionally) and the periods of sun are long. It is common knowledge that excess sun can cause illnesses such as skin cancer.
The safest procedure is to use plenty of high-factor sunscreen, especially on children. A hat is an indispensable accessory, as are a good pair of sunglasses. It is advisable to avoid exposure to the sun during its strongest point in the day, between midday and 3 o'clock in the afternoon. In the case of sunburns or sunstroke, do seek medical attention.
