Weekend weather: Portugal set for “heat boom”

If you thought it was hot during the week, then get ready for piping-hot weather this weekend.

Temperatures are expected to increase by an average of 8ºC on Saturday (May 16), all over Portugal.

IPMA predicts maximum temperatures of 31ºC in Faro, 34ºC in Beja and Lisbon, 32ºC in Coimbra and 28ºC in Porto. Skies also be blue all the way.

It’s a perfect excuse to hit the beach and make the most of it as temperatures are set to fall again on Monday, according to IPMA’s meteorologist Ricardo Tavares.
