On the whole a better day than forecast yesterday, the rain / showers didn't materialise but the wind certainly did in the afternoon from the SW / S with gusts I would say of well over 30mph, with the wind came the dust so some cleaning needed. As can be seen in one of the pictures the sea got quite choppy.  The wind had dropped by 7pm.





This morning at 7am no wind to speak of 20C little dew some cloud and the stars were clearly visible, by day ligh itt could be seen the sea had calmed down with little swell.




Todays Caleta forecast -
A mix of sun and cloud with a 51% chance of a shower at midday, temperatures to reach 26C feel like 29C at 1pm with a UV factor of up to 5 between 1pm and 3pm, humidity up to 80% at 2pm
Wind from the W this morning 10 to 15mph then this afternoon moving WNW at 15 down to 12mph
