Weekend weather: September off to hot, sunny start

Another weekend of hot and sunny weather is expected in mainland Portugal, most of which is under yellow alert due to high temperatures.

Saturday is expected to be a perfect beach day with clear blue skies and temperatures topping the 30ºC in the Algarve. The sea temperature will likely reach a “warm” 23ºC.

Maximum temperatures are also due to reach 35ºC and 34ºC in Lisbon and Porto and a scorching 38ºC in the Alentejo.

However, temperatures are set to plunge several degrees on Sunday when skies are also expected to be overcast.
