Portugal stretches over 3 climatic zones, due to its elongated shape. Roughly, one could say that the north is cooler and humid compared to the Mediterranean south. Lisbon and Peniche are located in the temperate, but warm zone. The average annual temperature is 15 °C, with summer rarely exceeding 30 °C and winter falling below 10 °C. The precipitation increases in the cold half of the year and decreases in the summer. This means: light clothing and the layers like an onion principle!
