The IPMA’s forecast for this Sunday, December 24, 2023, indicates periods of mostly cloudy skies and showers, especially in the afternoon. This suggests that, at least in some areas of Madeira, it may rain on Christmas night.

The wind, in general, will be weak (less than 20 km/h) from the East quadrant. The same forecast applies to the Funchal area, including mostly cloudy skies and showers in the afternoon, possibly extending into the night.

At sea, on the North coast, waves from the North direction will be 1 to 1.5 meters high, while on the South coast, waves are expected to be less than 1 meter.

The seawater temperature will be between 21 and 22 degrees Celsius, indicating that those who want to take a dip on Christmas Eve and perhaps, if these predictions hold for Monday, a swim on Christmas Day.
