Has the dust settled yet? We are visiting next Thursday for two weeks. Thanks for all of your tips!

Hi Marisa,

We experienced another wave of North African Dust on Friday and Saturday. Apparently this is unusual for Portugal, but weather is changing everywhere.

The forecast for the upcoming week shows rain until Thursday (your arrival date). Then a mixture of clouds and sun.

Safe Communities Portugal is a good resource to keep on hand. They provide warnings of extreme weather conditions as well as other useful info for citizens and tourists. Here is their website: https://www.safecommunitiesportugal.com/

Mask mandates in crowds and public transportation are still in effect through the middle of April.

I wish you safe travels and would love to hear about your trip to Portugal!
