The Climate in Portugal

A beach in the Algarve

If you want to sum up the climate in Portugal in one word it has to be sunny. In fact the weather is one of the reasons the country is so popular with visitors. For fans of sport and adventure it often means being able to indulge in their passion all year around. So if it's grey and miserable at home, check out today's temperature in Portugal.

In general Portugal is a country of long summer days and comparatively mild winters. However the weather varies quite considerably around the country and is generally milder on the west coast than inland.

If you've already planned your holiday and just want to know for example what's the weather like in Portugal in July or if its hot in the Algarve in September then jump straight to the Algarve, the Alentejo, Lisbon, Central Portugal, the North, Madeira or the Azores. Or you can continue reading for detailed information on the climate in Portugal.

Personally I think that spring and autumn are the best times of year for adventure holidays in most of Portugal. At this time of the year many regions are pleasantly warm, but not too hot to do sport, the countryside is carpeted with flowers and there are fewer other tourists about. If you adore the sunshine though you can't beat those long summer days.

I hope this page will help you plan your holiday to Portugal or satisfy any curiosity about today's weather in Portugal!
