Weekend weather: Algarve is ‘the’ place to be this long weekend

The Algarve is set to enjoy the sunniest, warmest and generally nicest weather in Portugal during the upcoming long weekend, which begins tomorrow (June 10) with the celebration of national holiday ‘Portugal Day’.

Though weather is forecast to start off gloomy tomorrow, it should improve over the weekend with maximum temperatures reaching summer-like 30ºC and 31ºC in the Algarve and Alentejo.

And if you’re planning a beach trip, then the Algarve is the place to be as it will be “the only place in Portugal where wind will be a mere breeze,” according to IPMA meteorologist Maria João Frada.
