Haze has not burned off, but it is weakening
Temp on the terrace in direct sun is 44 c, and 41 c out of it, wind is northerly 13/14 Mph but when it blows it feels as if it is coming out of a car door that has been left in the sun, humidity 50%

08:00







15:30





I personally have only twice in my life felt it warmer than this, Nicosia 1976 when it was 48 c in the shade, and Sadat  City 1981 when it was 53 c in the shade, please no one ask what it was out of the shade as i never ventured there ::)

Try putting your thermometer in a more appropriate place as your quoted temps are just silly and gives no indication of real temps here in Fuerteventura. "in the shade" in an artificially hot location tells nothing!

My temps..... yesterday max 36C; today no more than 32C; device in outside location that NEVER gets sunshine but has access to free flowing air.

Correct measurement should be taken in a Stevenson shielded box, to avoid solar radiation, and in a location 5 ft above ground (not tarmac) with free airflow.
Aemet recorded: 36 at Gran Tarajal, 38 at Airport and just under 30 at Antigua.
All the same, getting pretty warm now.

Caleta 12:00 It is not as yet improving,

Temp 25 C

Wind 19/21 Mph

And it is raining







16:00
Rain came to very little sufficient to wet the terrace surfaces and force us to eat lunch indoors.

It started to clear around 14:00



but still some ominous cloud around



Temp is currently  25 C, wind is still as was, but humidity has dropped to 67%
