We returned from PB on Xmas day and I was very surprised by the weather - it was fantastic. Usually on a two week break, you would expect to have at least one or two days of rain but it was bone dry.
Temperatures were hovering around 21-24C during the day. There was little cloud cover and when the sun was out, it was hot. It was perfect sunbathing weather and it was shorts and teeshirt all the time.
Admittedly, Jan will be a little cooler than in Dec but I don't think you will need woolies. A this sweater/sweatshirt will do. One thing to watch our for though. The late afternoon temperatures, say anything between 16:00 to 18:00 does drop a bit (change in winds/air pressure??) and you do feel a chill but it soon warms up again in the early evenings.
