Easter Sunday with rain, but depression Nelson leaves Portugal


Share post:

Rain and snow in some mountain ranges in the North and Center regions will continue on Easter Sunday in Portugal, which is no longer affected by depression Nelson, the IPMA said today.

In a statement, the Portuguese Sea and Atmosphere Institute (IPMA) said that on Easter Sunday, the sky will be temporarily very cloudy with showers, which may occasionally be accompanied by thunderstorms, being more intense in the Minho and Douro Litoral regions from the afternoon onwards, and decreasing in frequency in the south.

According to the IPMA, snow should continue to fall in the mountains of the northern region and in the Serra da Estrela, while the wind will be from the west or southwest, sometimes blowing strongly on the coast and in the highlands, with gusts of up to 60 kilometers per hour.

The IPMA forecasts a minimum temperature for Easter Sunday of between 6ºC and 11°C, with between -3°C and 6°C in the north and central interior, and a slight rise in the maximum temperature, especially in the north.

The maximum temperature will fluctuate between 11°C and 17°C, and will be lower than 10°C in some places in the central interior.

The IPMA also indicates that the sea disturbance will gradually decrease, remaining under a yellow warning until early Sunday afternoon south of Cabo Raso, with northwest waves of four to 4.5 meters on the west coast, and southwest waves of three to four meters on the south coast.

The Portuguese Sea and Atmosphere Institute also says that the weather in mainland Portugal continues to be influenced by frontal waves associated with a vast depressionary region that stretches from Iceland to the Madeira region.

One of its nuclei was the Nelson depression, which has since moved northeast.
