A scorching weekend in Portugal

in News · 03-07-2020 01:00:00 · 1 Comments

The entire country will be bathed in sunshine with high temperatures this weekend.

Lisbon: It will be feeling particularly hot this weekend in the capital as temperatures rise to a maximum of 35 degrees on Sunday and nightly lows of only 18 degrees. For the rest of the week the hot weather is to continue, although it will feel a little cooler as temperatures reach average highs of 29 degrees.

The south: The summer weather continues in the south this weekend with temperatures soaring to highs of 34 degrees and only dropping to nightly lows of 23 degrees. It is to feel slightly cooler as the week progresses with highs of 32 degrees however southerly winds will not help to cool down the region.

The north: Temperatures are to peak in the north on Sunday with the thermometer rising to 29 degrees during the day and only falling to 17 at night. On Monday there will be a chance of cloud cover but temperatures will remain high before starting to fall slightly from Wednesday.


So Portugal consists of Lisbon, the south and the north. Nice to know that Central Portugal, where we live, doesn’t actually exist. Maybe that’s why so little support or progressive projects and businesses come here.
