Weekend weather: Portugal expects “hot, sunny” weekend

After a few cooler days, Portugal is in for an extremely hot and sunny weekend with temperatures going as high as 35ºC to 38ºC in the Algarve and Alentejo.

Elsewhere, Lisbon and Porto are expecting maximums of 32ºC and 27ºC.

Wind will also be almost non-existent, making the weather perfect for a trip to one of the Algarve’s beautiful beaches.

Beachgoers should take adequate sun protection however, as UV levels continue to be “very high” in most of Portugal and “extreme” in Funchal, Madeira.
