Weather In Albufeira now

We are off to Albufeira this Sunday 20 Oct. Wondered if anyone that has just returned or there now, could tell me what the weather is like, so I can pack . I am thinking it not going to be swimsuit weather, never been to Portugal before so any advice appreciated!!

Thanks

Got back yesterday, after a week of mostly sun. No rain. does get a bit chilly in the evening though. I was told that rain is expected by weekend.

Today seems to be the last day with higher temperatures. Here's our national weather forecast: www.ipma.pt/en/otempo/prev.10dias/…

Keep checking back as it changes a lot! If it says rain or showers it usually doesn't last all day and it can be quite local. Before you know the sky opens up and the sun is back.

Nothing to worry about, just pack for some changeable weather and enjoy it as it comes?!

Have a nice holiday.

Rain in Algarve is kind of a joke, it rains a bit and in a few minutes sun shines bright like it was as summer day. Rarely there is a dark, cloudy, smoggy, rainy day.

The chilly feeling in the evening is more the dampness of the climate than cold. Just an extra layer will do. Bring an umbrella in case of showers (I never wear coats).

Weather must be the most asked question on this Forum, as a ex Royal Navy Met, I do take a interest in the Weather but when on Holiday in Vilamoura generally at the end of October and through to November I forget all about it, I just take a light weight waterproof for when it rains the Wife takes the same and her Cardi which she bought out there on a previous visit. So forget the Weather and enjoy your Holiday you can always buy a brolley out there very cheap. To many clothes in the case will increase the weight of your cases, most people take far to much at least we do but this our 30th year we are learning.

Freezing this morning, 17C at 0745am. Sun is out, mostly blue sky, steady breeze. A faint chance of a shower or two later but the weekend does look like being wet. Very humid as Flubert says, makes everything feel just a bit damp if you are not getting in sun in through the windows.

If you are worried about getting wet, buy one of those disposable yellow or orange rain capes that cyclists and walkers wear. I have a couple. You will look like an idiot, but they work and take up only a tiny space in the luggage.

I am here now & it's lovely. Sun is shining and I'm sipping cocktails at the pool....;-) Just need a light cardigan for the evenings. They said it might rain tonight but will hopefully turn out nice tommorow. Ps salgados. Beach is lovely....

We had rain in the morning, but indeed it has cleared up and sun is out again.

It looks like it's going to be dry tomorrow with some clouds, sunshine and 21C.

Not bad for an October holiday?!
