Predicted storms downgraded slightly
The bad weather originally forecast for Sunday and the start of next week seems to have taken a slight turn for the better, with the “lightning” icons that featured on the Portuguese Weather Institute, IPMA, forecast (below) having disappeared. The symbol does, however, remain on the BBC forecast opposite
The predicted storms seem to have been replaced on the IPMA forecast by heavy rain, with the current likelihood of rain in Funchal very unusually rated at 100% on Sunday and Monday (Tuesday later joined them on 100%).
Windguru, also below still forecasts strong winds, which could impact on the few flights arriving Sunday thru Tuesday, although the wind direction appears favourable for the airport. Strangely IPMA does not predict that the winds will be as strong as Windguru
