Loulé Carnival

Surprise! Carnival weekend likely to be blighted by cold and rain

In spite of warmer than usual temperatures throughout Portugal over the last couple of weeks, the situation is set to change… in time for Carnival. Harking back to so many Carnivals of the past, the Carnival weekend next week will see areas in the north with chilly maximums of around 8ºC, although southern areas can expect roughly double that, or slightly more. According to meteorologists, however, every region can expect some rain.
