In the district of Faro, the municipalities of Tavira, São Brás de Alportel, Loulé, Silves, Portimão and Monchique remain at maximum risk of fire, the same level as in the Alentejo municipalities of Portalegre, Marvão, Castelo de Vide, Nisa and Gavião , all in the district of Portalegre.
In the Center region, the municipalities of Vila Velha de Ródão, Castelo Branco, Fundão, Oleiros, Proença-a-Nova, Sertã and Vila de Rei (district of Castelo Branco), as well as the municipalities of Mação, Sardoal, Abrantes, Chamusca, Constância, Vila Nova da Barquinha, Tomar and Ferreira do Zêzere (Santarém), and Guarda (district capital).

The IPMA also warns of the high risk of fire in virtually all of the rest of Alentejo and in municipalities in the districts of Aveiro, Porto and Vila Real.
The fire risk determined by the IPMA has five levels, ranging from reduced to maximum, and calculations are obtained from air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and the amount of precipitation in the last 24 hours.
Since the beginning of the year, there have been more than 4,992 fire events, which affected more than 10,500 hectares of rural areas.
According to the IPMA, the district of Faro remains under yellow warning today, due to the forecast of very high temperatures, which can reach 35 degrees Celsius (ºC).
Maximum temperatures will fluctuate between 23ºC in Aveiro and 37ºC in Évora, while minimum temperatures will hover between 14ºC in Viana do Castelo, Braga, Bragança, Vila Real and Viseu.
The IPMA predicts for today on the continent cloudy skies, with sometimes strong wind, a drop in the minimum temperature north of the Montejunto-Estrela mountain system, especially on the coast, and a small rise in the maximum temperature, except on the central and south coast .
