Mainland Portugal occupies the most
westerly position in Europe and its weather and climate
are much influenced by the Atlantic. Its southerly latitude
gives it a Mediterranean type of climate,
similar to that of the state of California, but one
where the summer heat is tempered by the Atlantic influence.
the coast the winters are particularly mild. The north
and the central interior of Portugal include mountains
and plateaux rising in places over 1,800 m/6,000 ft;
here the summers are much cooler and winters may be
quite cold (see the table for Bragança, situated
at medium height in the extreme north).
Winter is the wet season everywhere
in Portugal, but autumn rain can sometimes be heavy
in the north as the fine weather of summer breaks. The
length and severity of the summer drought increases
from north to south. This can be seen by comparing the
monthly rainfall and number of wet days at Porto, Lisbon,
and Faro in the climatic tables.
Summer sunshine and temperature and
winter mildness also increase southwards. The south-facing
coast of the Algarve region is the sunniest, driest,
and warmest part of the country, but the summer heat
rarely reaches the unpleasant levels sometimes found
in southeastern Spain.
Another favourable aspect of this
region for tourists is the higher sea temperatures as
compared with those on the west-facing coasts farther
north, where seas are most likely to be rough.
Most parts of Portugal are sunny.
Daily hours of sunshine average from four to five in
winter and ten to eleven in summer in the north. These
figures rise to six in winter and twelve in summer in
the far south.
