The districts of Évora, Faro, Setúbal, Santarém, Lisbon, Beja and Portalegre will be under warning between 12:00 pm on Friday and 6:00 pm on Saturday due to the persistence of high values of maximum temperature.

The yellow warning, the least severe on a scale of three, is issued by IPMA whenever there is a risk situation for certain activities depending on the weather situation.

As of today, the forecasts indicate hot and dry weather due to the action of an “anticyclonic ridge between the Bay of Biscay and the archipelago of Madeira, which will give rise to a circulation that will bring in altitude an air mass originating in North Africa.

A generalized rise in temperature is forecast, especially in the maximum, with temperatures expected to rise above 30 degrees in most of the territory, with the exception of some locations on the western coastal strip, and values between 35 and 40 degrees in the interior, especially in the South where it should exceed 40 degrees.

The minimum temperature will also increase, with tropical nights (minimums above 20 degrees) being forecast in several places in the center and south, with emphasis on the eastern Algarve region where the minimums may even be close to 25 degrees.
