For the Lisbon DMA, the weather stations of Lisbon airport and S. Julião do Tojal for 2006–2007 were used to collect temperature and rainfall data, respectively. For the Setúbal DMA, the average daily temperatures from the weather station of Várzea for 2011 were collected and the monthly rainfall data were collected from the weather station of Moinhola. Table 2 presents the variation of temperature and rainfall for the different DMA and considered years. Average national temperatures are also presented, indicating an annual temperature for the studied DMA, lower compared with the average national temperature. Figure 3 depicts the average monthly temperature and monthly rainfall variation for the one-year period of analysis: temperature varies between 10 and 25 °C and the rainiest year was 2006, with a higher incidence of rainfall in March, October and November.
