Weather set to change for the worse?
Resident expert Jaime yesterday flagged up potential bad weather later this week, reporting that if the theory is correct, the Jet Stream might bring wind and/or rain to Madeira midweek. The netweather graphic opposite is for late Wednesday, and it does not improve significantly over the following days.
At the moment the BBC weather website only shows a 14% chance of rain on Thursday, and the Portuguese Weather Institute is not predicting anything too windy! However, the situation may change and will be updated here. Anxious not to spread any false alarm just to get website visitor numbers up …… and keep potential tourist numbers down!
