Windy in Portugal?

Hello -
When I traveled to Ireland in early April the best tip someone gave me was to wear a windproof jacket - I brought a suede one and was very happy I did so. Now that I'm going in early April 2014 to Portugal, another country on the Atlantic coast, I am wondering if the wind is a constant there, as well. Can anyone tell me?

Prevailing Atlantic oceanic winds in the northern hemisphere dictate onshore winds for western coasts.

Waterproof is also windproof. Not having a waterproof jacket as part of a basic travel kit for anywhere is inconceivable.

The wind can blow like stink all over Portugal.
