Rain to help keep people home as weekend curfews begin

Even the weather is telling us to stay home. At a time when some weekend curfews are beginning and the advice from the government is to only leave home when necessary, all of mainland Portugal is expecting rain this Saturday.

According to the Portuguese Sea and Atmosphere Institute (IPMA), the wet weather will continue tomorrow in the northern and central regions of Portugal. In the south, however, the sun is expected to make a timid appearance through the clouds.

By next week, the rainy weather is due to make way for clearer skies and temperatures as warm as 25ºC in the Algarve.
