The Portuguese Institute of the Sea and the Atmosphere (IPMA) on 29 March placed the district of Faro under yellow warning, due to sea agitation, and the central group of the Azores archipelago, because of rain.



<body9> According to the IPMA, the yellow warning for Faro extends until 6:00 pm on 29 March because of the sea agitation in the western part of the South coast, with south-east waves measuring two meters, while in the Azores the warning for the central group (islands de S. Jorge, Pico, Terceira, Faial and Graciosa) starts at 12:00 on 29 March and continues until 09:00 on 30 March.

For 30 March, the IPMA predicts that the yellow warning for the Azores will extend to maritime agitation (northwest waves), in effect between 00:00 and 18:00.

For 29 March in mainland Portugal, the IPMA predicts periods of very cloudy skies, with the possibility of showers, which during the afternoon may be accompanied by thunderstorms in the South region, sometimes strong wind in the east Algarve.

The minimum temperatures will vary between 8º (Bragança and Braga) and 16º (Faro) and the maximum between 17º (Guarda) and 24º (Beja and Braga).
