Current weather conditions here

weather reportWell the rain stayed away for most of yesterday, around here anyway. There was a fairly long spell just after dark.

This morning is very cloudy, there are some breaks but, out to sea especially, the cloud is piled high. Temperature at 0900 is 17.4ºC, there is a light wind from the west it looks. There doesn't seem to be any rain around at the moment except for a small patch to the south.

It will stay cloudy all day, top temperature 21C.  Tonight will be 12 or 13, should stay dry. Sunday not much change but perhaps a light shower or two. On Monday it will be a little cooler in a north wind, daytime not much more than 20C, night time 11 or 12. Those numbers are about average for the time of year.

The outlook for next week is for dry and sunny days until Friday at least. Maybe some cloud and rain after that, but it's changeable at this time of year.

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.
