Looking good until the weekend. The two green up arrows show a South wind coming, bringing with it a Calima
See the animation link below the graphic.  The 7th looks particularly bad  :-X

Very high cloud about - but it's bright and very warm.  Just a light SE breeze at 9.15am

There's a Yellow Alert in place for strong winds from the SE today and tomorrow, as sand is blown over from the Sahara and the temperature increases.

Quite a heavy haze around Caleta today, from the calima conditions. We drove up to PDR around lunchtime and you could not see the airport or the mountains from the Costa Antigua roundabout! Certainly warmer, though, really noticeable from first thing this morning, and as the sun has moved over it has become brighter. As long as the dust/haze doesn't bother you (we're OK!) it's really a very nice day indeed, and the pool beckons!

From the garden centre at Puerto del Rosario this morning I could barely see planes coming over the town to land through the murk.

Morning Captain, looking at the weather sites, it looks like the predicted dust will just miss Fue. It seems that some of the sites are out of sync or just not updating what's happening on the ground.
