Honestly take what you need for the day. Many are off / broken for whatever reason and can’t be relied upon. And seriously go early and try to finish by 1pm or 2pm.Oh dear ! We are starting on the Camino Portugues interior on Sunday 17th July, from Ponte de Lima, northwards. I am worried about how many water fountains we will come across, or not on the way. Any tips are welcome ?
The Crazy heat wave that hit us all late May - early June walkers on CF well into Meseta.... (one day I saw a Pharmacia displaying 44! ) .... I usually would fill my 3L camelback to about 2.5 and if I started around 6:30am and was done by indicated time - it would carry me through the walk.Honestly take what you need for the day.

Just for info: The various weather models are sometimes in conflict with each other when the predictability is low. A TV weather forecast to which I listen may occasionally say that according to Reading (UK) tomorrow’s weather will be so and so while according to Offenbach (Germany) it will be so and so. The closer the day for which a forecast is made the more likely it is that the various models coincide and predict the same weather but that is not always the case.There's something weird about that forecast, Ivar. Out of curiosity I gooled a few cities and got results like this.
