The “calima” has come back to the Costa Del Sol, though it is far less severe than the haze we experienced earlier in April.  Light rain is forecast today, with thunderstorms being predicted for Wednesday.  Spain’s national weather agency AEMET have not issued any weather warnings, and forecasters predict that the return of the sand storm won’t have a major impact on the area.

The phenomenon knows as “calima” is a haze caused by sand which has been blown from the Sahara desert and is falling to earth with the rain.   The “calima” leaves sandy mud on roads and can cause poor visibility for drivers.
