The heatwave warnings have been removed, the sky is not quite clear but pretty good, the calima looks as if it has gone and the forecast for the south suggests it will be cooler. I don’t want to burst anyone’s bubble but it is already 26°C in the deepest shade on my patio – so much for taking an early walk.
Yesterday my weather post was early, as I had to be up in Arona by 9.00am and then down in Los Cristianos by 11.00am. In the hills, there was a breeze that felt as if it was from a hairdryer; on the coast, it was blisteringly hot. Temperatures were 33°C in the shade when I got home so I suspect there would only be a degree or two difference whether you were by the sea or in the mountains. I saw a young woman in the doctors being treated for sunburn. €90 it cost her for thinking because there was cloud cover she wouldn´t get burnt. An expensive lesson learnt.
The following images are from Costa Adeje in the south of the island and Puerto de la Cruz in the north of the island and are taken from the webcam yesterday at 12.00, 3.00 and 5.00. These times are approximate and are at whatever is the nearest before or after the hour.
