Current weather conditions here

weather reportIt was very windy yesterday afternoon, lots of gusts indeed blowing stuff around. Temperature was around 34ºC.


I woke at 730 this morning to the sound of heavy raindrops splattering against the brickwork. It lasted only a short time, but rain it was. Now at 0820 it is quite cloudy, the sun is just starting to break through. Temperature 26.2ºC, despite that few moments of rain and the cloud,  the humidity is only 46%. The air is almost still.

Forecast for today is 35ºC, but staying fairly cloudy all day. Those gusty winds may well re-appear during the afternoon and evening. There are a lot of low clouds around, a localised shower or two is fairly likely.

Tonight will be a reasonable one again, temperature in the low 20's. Monday and Tuesday won't be so hot as it has been, 28 - 30ºC probably.

That's my last on the spot report for a while. I am off on a European trip, starting with Nottingham and leaving Albufeira to the tourists. Don't forget you can see the weather forecast at http://www.ipma.pt/en/otempo/prev.localidade.hora/index.jsp#Faro&Albufeira

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.
