wb_sunnyWeather & Climate The Sunniest Place in Europe
The proximity of the Mediterranean Sea greatly influences the Algarvian climate. Summers are hot and dry, but not suffocating thanks to the Atlantic Ocean, and winters are mild with hardly any rain (50 days with rain and 500 mm on average each year), combined with very inviting springs and autumns. The Algarve is famous for enjoying over 300 days of sun and 3000 hours of sunlight on average per year.
Daily Weather ReportPosted: Today
Sunny again with a bit of a breeze this morning. Temperature at 0855am is 24.2º.
Forecast for today is a maximum 30º, light wind and perhaps some high cloud. Tonight temperature will fall to 21 or 22º.
Tomorrow could be quite different to what is has been this past two weeks. It will be cooler, 27º at most, and there is a 50% chance of rain, light showers possible during the afternoon. Monday and Tuesday should be ok, around 26º but cloudy, then there could be some unsettled and rainy days to follow.
It will be no surprise for those here that this last fortnight has seen the highest May temperatures across the country for many years. The centre and north was in fact hotter than down here, with the maximum being 37.3 in Pinhão, on the Douro valley.
