Deja Vu... Carnival Monday will see another calima come to Canaries
The State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) has posted that a calima is coming to the Canary Islands which will arrive sometime on Monday, and that it is being dragged towards the archipelago by a strong wind from the east.
The haze, which is predicted to be strong with large quantities of sand in the air, will spread throughout the islands as of Tuesday, although it is not expected to reach the intensity of the one that came to the islands on Carnival Monday & Shrove Tuesday last year.
This calima is expected to exceed the threshold of 50 micrograms of concentration per cubic metre, be of a very dry deposition, and an increase in temperatures is expected. This rise in temperatures will begin tomorrow (Sunday) when highs of 24 degrees are expected, with humidity of 45-50%, and winds between 25 and 30km/h depending on the island.
