The weather in Portugal is the product of a Mediterranean climate, tempered by the influence of the Atlantic Ocean. Winters are mild and summer sunshine is plentiful.

Expats in the central parts of the mainland may experience slightly cooler temperatures due to elevation. Otherwise, the mercury usually sits at around 78°F (25°C) in summer and 61°F (16°C) in winter.

Rainfall in Portugal is mostly present during winter, but heavy periods of precipitation can occur in autumn.

Weather in Portugal's Algarve region, a favourite expat destination, is by far the best in the country. This pensioners' playground is the sunniest, driest and warmest part of the nation, yet temperatures are never uncomfortably hot.
