High UV alert issued for entire country

All regions across Portugal have been issued by high or very high level warnings due to the risks posed by extended exposure to UV rays.

According to an advisory issued this morning by the Portuguese Met Office, southern Portugal and parts of Madeira will today be experiencing very high levels of ultraviolet radiation.

The warnings have resulted in people being recommended to wear sunglasses, hats and t-shirts when outside, while also using sun cream and avoiding that children spend prolonged time in the sun, especially between noon and 4pm.
