Same again today. It's not so bad along the coast. A phenomenon  known as 'upwelling' has lowered the sea temperature to around 17 or 18ºC, so the wind coming off the water is keeping coastal areas to a bearable 32 or 33, only a few miles inland it's nearer 40. The local paper records that in 2003 on this very day temperatures in practically the whole region hit 41. That was the year in which thousands died because of the heat.

If you think it's hot in Albufeira, spare a thought for those up country in Portalegre, where at 1am this morning the air temperature was 34.5ºC. That's hot.

Breezy morning, not a cloud in the sky and expecting 33ºC later. Further inland 38ºC on the cards.

Make the most of it, the news says. Current forecast for the middle of the week is thunderstorms and temperature plunging to a very unseasonal 23ºC!

Very hot yesterday, one of the outdoor thermometers briefly said 36ºC, don't know how accurate though. Another hot one coming today, certainly well into the 30´s but, as the local paper has it this morning, the heat before the storms. Tuesday night into Wednesday is expected to be fairly nasty here, temperature is forecast still to be as low as 23ºC come Thursday.

Turned out very hot yesterday afternoon but the heatwave ends today - official. Cloudy at the moment, 50% chance of rain today, top temperature no more than 27ºC. Wednesday and Thursday are expected to be even colder, with a risk of thunderstorms.

The wind roared and howled most of the night but no rain and no damage done, unlike further north. Today it's cloudy again, rain is in the air. Today won't be more than about 24 or 25ºC. Risk again of a stormy night.

A few bangs of thunder and some fairly heavy rain early, now it's cloudy, rain in the air still and really cold compared with a few days ago, not expecting more than 22ºC today.

Cold overnight, down to 12ºC, sunny this morning and forecast 24ºC later. A pleasant last day by the seaside and to get a few km on the rented bike before I return it this evening.

Few spots of rain in Toulouse but mostly ok, forecast 29ºC today with a bit of cloud so not bad for a day around the city.

Last day on tour, grey and raining lightly. Possible storms later coming down from the mountains. Looks like it will be an indoors day today.

Didn't rain much yesterday but I can confirm now that French mosquitoes are more vicious than their Portuguese cousins. A short sit down in a park with a baguette didn't last five minutes before I was under attack. There is a particular problem with tiger mosquitoes, which are active in daytime as well as night.

Another grey dawn here, 16ºC, but back to sunny Albufeira later.
