In May, the weather in Lisbon gets up to the low 20's (Celsius) during the day and mid-teens in the evening. You may see a bit of rain. Be sure to have a jacket and long pants.
Portugal uses Type F for their plugs and sockets. Be sure to bring along an adapter if you are coming from a country that does not use the same type. https://www.power-plugs-sockets.com/portugal/
