ANDA polar air mass is approaching that will reach the mainland from next Monday, and until then it will gradually damage it.
According to statements by meteorologist Maria João Frade, from the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) to Minute News, until Tuesday the descent will be gradual and in the northeast of Trás-os-Montes and Beira Alta as minimum temperatures will even reach negative values, between -4 and 0 degrees.
The drop in maximum temperatures in the Center and South regions should be between two to four degrees and, on Sunday, there should be a small drop in minimum temperatures in the North and, in particular, Center.
On Monday they go down again as minimums and maximums, especially a maximum, in the North and Center regions, and no interior should feel a possible sharper drop in temperature.
“We will arrive on Monday and Tuesday with a maximum varying between 12 and 15 degrees except in the northeast of Trás-os-Montes and Beira Alta where the maximums must vary between 6 to 10 degrees“explains a meteorologist.
In the case of the minima, the values until Tuesday must vary between 4 and 7 to 8 degrees and, eventually, 10 degrees in coastal areas. They should also be lower inside where they vary between 0 and 3 degrees.
According to the meteorologist, conditions will go down a lot, but one cannot yet speak of a polar cold wave.
