No hard feelings with the rain that the storm Laura brought us during the week, even because the weekend brings good weather and spring temperatures.
The week was marked by Laura’s depression, which brought rain, wind, and sea bustle. But past is past and Laura has already left for another parish. For this Friday, it is expected a small rise in the maximum temperature in the North and Center regions, presenting the generally cloudy sky.
For the weekend, the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and the Atmosphere (IPMA) provides cloudy or clear skies and a new rise in maximum temperature and also the minimum in the North and Central region.
Forecasters also emphasize “marked nighttime cooling”, which is due to the still large difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures.
