The forecast for today’s weather says mostly cloudy in the morning, then come the afternoon there is a chance of thunderstorms and the wind will be moderate to strong, with gusts up to 80 km/h…. I don’t however think that is our area as the weather charts are showing endless days of sunshine but it could be in some remote area up in the mountains. As I look out of my window what I am actually seeing is weak sunshine, a slight haze and no cloud. Temperatures are still a high 25°C so the calima hasn’t quite gone yet but seems to be on its way out.
Yesterday the sky turned from a dirty brown fog to blue haze and the sun shone brightly giving shade temperatures of 32°C which felt at least 10 degrees warmer once outside. By late afternoon the strong wind that was supposed to be with us didn´t visit Chayofa and the heat was ongoing well into the evening.
