Anyone in Andalucía who thought they had seen the last of the calima, the airborne dust from the Sahara desert that stains everything orange-brown, was mistaken. The Aemet weather office says it will return later this week, although it will not be as bad as it was in the spring, when it coincided with rain and storms.
The calima is due to reach the region on Friday and will be especially notable in the east, especially in Almeria, Granada and Malaga. Over the weekend, it will also affect the Balearics, Melilla and the Mediterranean coast.
Temperatures are also expected to rise this week with highs of over 35C in many places, but the increase will be progressive rather than excessive. says Aemet. In Seville the maximum temperatures are likely to be slightly higher.
In general, the weather for the rest of the week is expected to be stable, with clear skies or only a very little cloud.
