Hi Gene & Sharon,
Bumping this thread up to see if any new members can comment.
The weather seems to be impacted here as it has throughout the World. Our initial research on Portugal weather and where to live is all but thrown out the window.
Whether you attribute it to climate change or natural weather pattern shifts it is hard to definitely pinpoint the existing climate in a location compared to the Almanacs averages.
We were in Nazare last month and one day was gorgeous blue sky and warm. The next day was overcast with marine layer and mist for the whole day. It made us home sick for Huntington Beach but that would not normally occur in the peak of summer back home.
PS: We hate the wind with a passion but love a good breeze.
