Weather in the Algarve is characterized by unbroken sunshine & high temperatures, moderated by Atlantic breezes. July & August are the hottest but June has just as many hours of sunshine, almost no rain, and is slightly less hot. September is also hot, has just 2 days of rain per month on average but has slightly shorter daylight hours.
Spring & Autumn weather
On average the Algarve weather for May & October is better than English summer weather – similar daily temperatures but a lot more hours of sunshine, less rain & fewer wet days.
Rainfall in the Algarve has a different pattern to that in the UK. When it rains – it rains! The Algarve does not tend to get the long miserable days that characterize wet weather in the UK. Downpours are heavy when they occur, but are over more quickly & happen a lot less often!
