weather reportSunny once again. Eyes twitching and sore! Sneezy time as well. I like some rain!

Temperature at 1130am is 24.3C, air dry as a bone at 37% humidity. Blue skies overhead, just a little hazy out to sea, with a light breeze.

We could see 27C later today, but clouds will start to arrive during the evening. Tonight around 16C.

Those clouds will bring periods of light rain for tomorrow, perhaps some quite long spells. Temperature though still 24C. Thursday's forecast has been toned down to showers with sunny spells and 20C.

But the present forecast puts us in a flow of damp air from the south-west for the rest of the week and beyond, with rain and showers likely every day. Temperatures over the weekend could be as low as 18C.

Taking care in the Sun

As can be observed, during Summer, the temperature in the Algarve is very high (it can go over 40ºC/100ºF exceptionally) and the periods of sun are long. It is common knowledge that excess sun can cause illnesses such as skin cancer.
The safest procedure is to use plenty of high-factor sunscreen, especially on children. A hat is an indispensable accessory, as are a good pair of sunglasses. It is advisable to avoid exposure to the sun during its strongest point in the day, between midday and 3 o'clock in the afternoon. In the case of sunburns or sunstroke, do seek medical attention.
