The Madeira archipelago will be starting today with yellow warning due to the forecast of rain, sometimes heavy and accompanied by thunder, and wind, according to the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and the Atmosphere (IPMA).
According to the IPMA, the archipelago will be under yellow warning because of the rain between 9 am today and 9 pm on Sunday.

The yellow warning is issued by the IPMA whenever there is a risk for certain activities depending on the weather situation.

In Funchal, temperatures will fluctuate between 18 and 24 degrees Celsius and in Porto Santo between 16 and 21 degrees.
The Porto Santo Line have also cancelled today’s crossing thus evening which normally leaves Funchal at 7pm, customers can change their booking to Saturday or get a refund for the trip. Really not sure how this affects the PCR test which those travelling would have had, or if they would require a new test if changing tickets.
