Written By Lara Silva

Seven districts in mainland Portugal are under a yellow warning due to the heavy rain coming to Portugal on Wednesday between 3 am and 3 pm. The rain will begin in the afternoon on Tuesday, according to the Portuguese Institute of the Ocean and Atmosphere (IPMA), and is expected to remain until the end of the week.

The IPMA has said that a “significant change to the weather conditions is predicted in mainland Portugal.” The possibility of an “atmospheric river” is said to bring persistent periods of rain caused by the “arrival of tropical air masses with a large content of water vapor.”.

Along with the rain, cold weather is expected in Portugal this week. 

Due to the weather predictions, the IPMA put the districts of Viseu, Porto, Viana do Castelo, Leiria, Aveiro, Coimbra, and Braga under a yellow warning between 3 am and 3 pm on Wednesday.

The districts of Porto, Viana do Castelo, and Braga are under yellow warning due to south wind, with win up to 85 kilometers an hour expected between 12 am and 9 am on Wednesday.

The districts of Porto, Faro, Setúbal, Viana do Castelo, Lisboa, Leiria, Beja, Aveiro, Coimbra, and Braga are under a yellow warning due to the maritime agitation between 3 am on Thursday and 3 am on Friday. Waves of 4 to 5 meters are to be expected.

In early October, just a few weeks ago, Portugal saw temperatures above 30 degrees.
