Weather Algarve September/October

Hi there,

I am looking at booking a holiday in the Algarve for mid September or early October. How unpredictable is the weather usually at the start of October...? We don't want it to be super hot, but 23 - 25 degrees would be nice. :)

The average temepartures seem to be showing that September is usually pretty hot, whereas October is more bearable but the average rainfall seems to go up quite a bit...

Many thanks!

What you describe above is right. If you want it to be 23-25C it indeed would be end Sept./early Oct. and chances of rain increase. September is a wonderful month (in my opinion the best month of the year). Crowds are gone and still very pleasant temperatures.

About rain in October. If it rains it usually won't last all day. It's more like showers and then again blue sky and sunshine.

We go that time and its perfect weather.If it rains it comes down heavy and is over quick.2 minutes later all is dry and sunny.Would definitly reccommend that time of year.Not too busy,not too quiet.
