Cannot turn off the rain just yet! 730am Wednesday and it is grey and cloudy with a whole bunch of rain moving across from the south-west. It is not raining just at the moment but it's very windy, around 25mph steady wind and the whole of Portugal is on orange alert for high winds today.

It's not as nasty (yet) as yesterday morning - visibility is much better and I can actually see across the marina to the sea beyond.

It does look like the worst of the rain will miss Albufeira, hitting the coast between Faro and border and making the eastern Algarve and south-west Spain rather wet.

What will the visitors do with themselves today I wonder?

It's supposed to be getting a little better by Friday bur rather cool, a maximum of 15C/58F only.

It was much better today than yesterday (purely relative) as it hasn't actually rained yet. It's been overcast cloud all day and not very warm. There's some rain moving in from the south-west as I write.

It is forecast to be drying up by the weekend with temperatures back to around 18C which is about average for April.

Last summer was pretty good until 30th September, when the heavens opened.

Yes Luis and there is a saying in English 'April Showers' which this year have been of snow in much of the UK.

The heavens certainly did open. That was the day we arrived. We were at the Rocomar, a river was flowing past the front door along with tables, chairs and anything else that floated! However, three days later the sun came out and stayed out for the rest of the week, hopefully it will be the same this time!
Old grannies in the North East here have a saying "never cast your clout til May's out" Not sure what a clout is, any ideas?

I think it means "clothes".  Don't take off your Winter woollies until the may (hawthorn) is in blossom.  Wise words, I'm sure!

Clout: patch, piece of clothing (OED); historically the canvas stretched over a frame to make an archery target OR a nail with a large flat head. Receipe for confusion there? Also of course what your parents did to you when you misbehaved.

April showers? More like April monsoons!

9am Thursday and guess what? It is bucketing down.

I have a couple of rugs outside getting a free rinse.

Some more coming our way so it looks like another wet day in prospect.

Weather is supposed to get better during the afternoon. But, as said before, "Abril, Águas Mil !"
IMO Better to have all the rain now than during high season.

Yes the sun has come out but don't hold your breath as there is a bit more wet to come then it looks a lot better.

True enough about having the rain now. Think of all those unhappy little faces if this were August! Good business for Zoomarine - just seen two packed coaches off on their way over there.

Quite right, Administrator & Cubsur.  Think of us, we who are stuck in Englang have it permanently all year round.  By the way whoever heard of smow (& so much of it) & hail in April!!!  I don't remember it (or has it become the norm that I just don't notice it anymore.

This morning here in North East Blighty it was lovely and sunny. Took the mutz on the beach which was packed with other dogs and stray owners. However it is absolutely chucking it down now and freezing, hope the weather there changes by Saturday or I might not come!
