Weekend weather: Hot, sunny start to August

Another blistering weekend is forecast, especially in the Algarve where temperatures are due to reach maximums of 38ºC on Saturday (August 5).

“Moderate winds” and very high UV levels mean beachgoers need to take extra care with protection.

Heat will be extreme in the Alentejo, while in Lisbon and Porto maximums are due to be less (28ªC and 26ºC).
