weather reportThat little sprinke of rain yesterday evening wasn't on the agenda. How dare it!


This morning is quite misty out to sea, the sun is coming through though. Temperature at 0905am is 13.4C, so about the same as yesterday and there is the same light breeze. Today's weather will be more or less the same, a bit cloudy with top temperature 20 or 21C. There are a few showers dotted around Andalucia, they don't look like coming our way but who knows if one might sneak up on us later?

Tonight will again be around 11 or 12C. Not much change is expected for tomorrow(except a 22% chance of a shower they say) or Friday. The general weather situation won't change much over the next week or ten days. Light winds from the north, cloudy days but almost certainly dry, 19 or 20C daytimes, 10 - 12 at night.

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.
