Portugal is forecast a summer-like weekend, with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the mid-20s, before the rain returns and temperatures drop back down to the mid-teens by the middle of next week.
Lisbon: Lisbon looks as if it is in for a lovely weekend, with unblemished sunshine and highs in the region of 25 degrees Celsius forecast for both Saturday and Sunday. However, from next Tuesday, thermometers are set to plunge and heavy rain will return.
The South: A similar outlook is forecast for the Algarve although the southern region will be cloudy over the weekend and a degree or two cooler than Lisbon. Monday and Tuesday will be showery before heavier rain moves in on Wednesday.
The North: Again, even the north can look forward to a lovely weekend. The weather will peak on Saturday, with highs of 24 degrees Celsius and plenty of sunshine, before cloud starts to move in and thermometers gradually drop back into the mid-teens and heavy rain returns at the middle of next week.
