Calima!

Well, as I wrote last night, “Calima” was coming…
And it did. A bit past midnight it was getting windy, the temperature went up, and the humidity dropped significantly.
We have been getting wind gusts up to 21 m/s (75 kph, or 47 mph), and the relative humidity dropped to a mere 17%.
Temperature stayed over 20 °C all night, and when I write this is 22.8 °C.

It’s extremely hazy – earlier it looked almost like overcast, but it’s not – and the dust and dry air makes me cough. It’s unusually strong Calima, this time.
Below is a picture towards Teide, taken a few minutes ago by my weather camera. It’s haze and dust, not overcast. Now the sun occasionally shines through it.
