weather report

Last report for a few days as I am off to enjoy the delights of the early summer in England and the beer tent at the cricket. Thin high cloud up there this morning, sun is peeping through. Temperature at 0815am is 25.3ºC in a light wind.

Forecast for today is 30ºC with a bit of cloud around all day. Warm tonight but not all that humid, no lower than about 22 along the coast, a touch lower inland.

The next couple of days will though be more cloudy and not so hot, only 25 perhaps, then from Thursday onward we shall again be back in the high 20's in the day, cooler at night 17 - 20ºC, with cloudy weather at times.

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.
