Weather guidance for Northern Portugal in June

Hi all,

We're looking to arrange a holiday to Portugal incorporating Lisbon, Porto, Braga and finally Geres National park but were wondering when is best to do this. We ideally want to avoid school holidays so were thinking mid June but have seen temp avg of around 21 degrees.

Now were not necessarily looking for ridiculously high temp but this avg doesn't seem particularly warm.

Am I being confused by this avg or does is it warm enough for a few days at the beach at this time?

Thanks in advance

Northern Portugal has mountains (real mountains) where it will not be as warm as the coastal regions and there might be some clouds and rain, even in June.

I don't know where you got your numbers from, but average June daytime temperatures in Porto and Braga will be around 24 or 25C according to a couple of weather sites. It will of course feel much hotter in the direct sunshine.

Google 'weather averages xxxx' where xxxx is the city and you will get the information you need.

June it's a great month to be on the outdoors. The north it's a little bit cooler then the south, but even if it rains one day it will be hot and sunny the next day...

We visited Portugal last June and, while the day time temperatures were fabulously hot, lots of sun, etc., we were caught unprepared for how much it cooled off at night. Recommend slightly warmer clothes for the evening. Pants, long sleeve shirts, a jacket, a light sweater, etc.

Enjoy!
