The week kicks off with high temperatures across the country and the heat will continue over the next few days, according to a forecast by the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and the Atmosphere (IPMA).
“We are going to continue with a little cloudy sky and temperatures will remain above average for this time of year,” said Cristina Simões, IPMA meteorologist, to Multinews.
Temperatures will even reach 30 degrees in several districts, such as Lisbon and Santarém.
“The wind will be a little more intense from Monday”, but otherwise the high temperatures and heat will remain throughout this week, predicts the meteorologist.
For this Monday, the IPMA forecasts skies that are generally fine, temporarily cloudy by high clouds until late morning. The general wind will be light from the eastern quadrant, being moderate (20 to 30 km/h) in the Algarve, blowing temporarily northwest on the western coastal strip in the afternoon, and moderate to strong (up to 40 km/h) in the highlands until mid-morning and from late afternoon.
For this Tuesday, the country can again expect a day of light cloudy or clear skies with generally light wind from the eastern quadrant, temporarily moderate (up to 30 km/h) from northwest on the western coastal strip in the afternoon and blowing moderate to strong (up to 40 km/h) in the highlands until mid-morning and from late afternoon.
