Easter temperatures above average for this time of year

Written By Lara Silva

Temperatures are set to rise as the week continues, and this Easter weekend is going to be a warm one. Clear weather without rain is predicted, with a gradual increase in temperatures over the week.

The Alentejo region is set to experience maximum temperatures above the seasonal average, reaching as high as 30 degrees Celsius in some areas during the weekend, according to the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and the Atmosphere (IPMA).

While most areas are expected to see maximum temperatures between 23 and 26 degrees Celsius, the coastal strip may see slightly lower temperatures.

However, while temperatures will continue to rise throughout the week, there will be cold nights, unlike in the summer, with a noticeable difference between day and night temperatures.

While Easter on the mainland is bound to be dry, this might not be the case in both Madeira and the Azores. The IPMA predicts that precipitation can occur in the islands, as well as some cloudiness.

Easter Sunday is a Catholic holiday that is celebrated on April 9 this year. In Portugal, families get together for lunch, often eating roast lamb. Good Friday falls on April 7 and is a national holiday.
