In this location in the municipality of Câmara de Lobos, situated at about 500 meters of altitude, the significant thermal amplitude recorded between dawn (15.8 ºC at 07:20) and midday (26.4 ºC) or that is, in less than five hours the air temperature increased by more than 10°C.

This warm weather should last until tomorrow.
