Portugal is located in Europe. The country is washed by the Atlantic Ocean. Portugal - has a fairly long coastline. To determine the temperature of water in it, we track 82 settlements and resorts.

Subtropical, soft and without sharp fluctuations in temperature. In the north, the marine climate is dominated by the Gulf Stream. Summer is dry and sunny, but not hot (average temperature is about 20°C, in the mountains - about 18°C), winters are cool (from + 4°C to + 10°C) and rainy. In the south, the weather is always warmer and drier. The average January temperature is from + 5°C to + 10°C, July - from + 20°C to + 27°C. Precipitation on the plains falls from 400 to 800 mm, in the mountains from 1000 to 2500 mm per year. The climate of the Azores is subtropical, marine. The islands are in the zone of formation of the Azores anticyclone and have a fairly even temperature background - the average January temperature is about + 14°C, July is about + 22°C, while the maximum temperature on the mountain slopes can rise to + 24°C in winter and +34°C in the summer. Precipitation is 700-800 mm per year, in some places up to 1500 mm, with the western and north-western slopes receiving a significantly larger amount of rain. Maximum precipitation occurs in the winter period (from September to April). The water temperature during the year ranges from + 16°C to + 24°C. The climate of Madeira is subtropical oceanic, soft and warm. The average temperature on the coast in the summer is about + 23 ° С, in the winter - about + 20 ° С. Precipitation in the form of thunderstorms and heavy rains falls mainly in the winter, and summers are relatively dry. The swimming season lasts almost all year round.

Portugal: oceans and seas

We monitor the following oceans and seas that wash the country. Just go to the page for a specific reservoir and see the temperature in all settlements on the coast.

Find out the temperature of sea water in more than 12000 cities and resorts around the world. Water surface temperature values are available in real time. There is a forecast of water temperature changes for the next few days, as well as historical data of sea surface temperature are available for all days of the last years.

We use data from various sources, including National Centers for Environmental Information (NOAA), meteorological services of different countries, data received from more than a thousand buoys around the world, satellite systems for scanning the surface of the oceans and seas.
