weather reportThis morning at 0630am I was woken by some cats squabbling outside. Then it was 19.1C and quite cloudy. Now at 11.15am it is 25.8C, the cloud has mostly gone and it is quite windy. It's also humid, 75%.

Max today 27 , some hazy cloud will be with us all day I think. Tonight will again see temperatures fall to around 18 or 19C.

Tomorrow ought to be a little warmer than today, then on Thurdady we will see a return to higher temperatures, expecting 32C daytime, 20 at night and that's set for four or five days following. There is a fairly stationary area of low pressure sitting out in the Atlantic which some think could even bring some rain on Monday and Tuesday next week, certainly slightly cooler temperatures.

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.
