    Thinking of taking off to sunnier climes in the dull winter, what kind of weather might we expect in Portugal in January ? obviously it's not likely to be roasting but is it worth the long drive down ?

    If the weather is the main consideration then the East coast of Spain has more consistent sun.

    We spend 6 months near Tavira in the Eastern Algarve and the weather can be mixed, a bit like Summers in the UK:)

    Eastern Algarve probably less rain than the West, if the sun is out it is possible to sunbathe out of the wind.

    We went to the Algarve area in mid Feb 2014 for 2 weeks & had mainly wall to wall sun & easily warm enough to sunbathe.

    ( Past weather conditions are no indication of future one's tho' ) :)
