I had to cut my morning coffee short his morning as it was pretty chilly to sit out. The weather has not been great and the east has had a fair bit of rain over the last few days. The cloud is also keeping it much cooler but when the sun does break through its very warm, with high UV exposure.
Yesterday morning driving to the airport the visibility out towards Machico was very bad with a lot of low cloud and rain, I took this screen shot from the webcam.
I believe the west has had some better sunshine, but it has still not been that warm.
The UK seems to be having one of the best summers for years and hosepipe bans are already in place in some areas, temperatures have been well into the high 20s and low 30s for weeks now with plenty of sunshine.
How is the weather where you are? let me know in the comments below.
Serra da Estrela in the north of Portugal was painted white the other day with hail stones, very unusual for July and residents took to social networks posting photos of the white out.
