The reason for the pleasant Portuguese climate
depends upon the two fundamental aspects: the Atlantic felt more
in the North, the continental and the Mediterranean, which dominates
the south. Portugal experiences comparable temperatures to Spain
though the consequence of the climate on the vegetation.
Average daytime temp maxim during winter is about 16°C (61°F).
Approximately 5-6 hours of sunshine per day. Spring months gradually
warm up with average maximum temperatures reaching up to 22°C
(72°F) for approximately 10 hours of sunshine per day. During
the summer temperatures around 25°C (78°F) and 11 or 12 hours
of sunshine per day .
The northern region benefits from the Atlantic cyclones while
South and East are dominated by the subtropical anticyclone that
allows temperatures to rise up to 40°C during the summer.
Generally the climate in Portugal is neither too hot nor too cold.
It all depends on the area and the time of the year you choose
to visit Portugal.
