Just in case anyone was hoping for a warm spring end to the week, meteorologists have warned of a polar front on the way – with temperatures set to fall by as much as 9ºC.
The worst of the weather will be affecting central areas, with Lisbon and Leiria on yellow alert for high winds until Thursday.
The Algarve should escape the wind, but will still feel a distinct chill by Friday.
And then we can expect rain, say forecasters, all the way to May.
Happy 25th April Bank Holiday!
