Camino Portuguese mid April to May?


Has anyone taken the Camino Portuguese between mid April and mid May? I'm tentatively planning on it for next year, probably starting in Oporto but possibly farther south, maybe Coimbra.

I'm curious about what sort of weather to expect that time of year.

Thank you,

I started 05.05.2009 at Porto.

The weather was very good with one exception. Mostly 22 - 25 degrees C.
In Pontevedra we had one day with very heavy rain in the morning. In the afternoon the weather became better, only slight rain, which stopped finally.
