The Madeira News website, with its automated 24/7 news feed has picked up a report that from this coming Friday temperatures will start to rise in the Region.

According to Victor Prior, the delegate in Madeira of the Portuguese Weather Institute, IPMA, “a significant increase in maximum and minimum temperature is expected from Friday, which should last at least until Monday 11th.

In this period of time, the maximum temperatures in Funchal should vary between 28 and 30 degrees, and the minimum between 20 and 22 degrees. The forecasts at the beginning of this week, which reported temperatures around 35 degrees, were not confirmed.

The heat will be felt not only in Funchal, but throughout the archipelago, especially in the mountainous regions, where the relative humidity values ​​will be “very low”.

With the forecasts also come the warnings for the increase in the risk of fire, this despite the fact that, as Victor Prior underlined, the forecasts for the wind speed have also been improving. “We are going to have relatively high temperatures and very low humidity, so the risk of fire increases according to these values”, he explained.

At the origin of these high temperatures is a mass of warm air coming from North Africa. However, the Region should not be affected by the dust, as is expected for the Portuguese mainland.
