High clouds and intermittent dust

Dust affects visibility in the region


A loose low-pressure system is making its presence felt in the region, leading to a mix of weather conditions. Intermittent thin dust particles will be observed in the atmosphere, affecting visibility and air quality.

Today, residents can expect predominantly sunny skies, although the morning hours will see an increase in high-level cloud cover. Initially, winds will be variable, but as the day progresses, they will shift to sea breezes. These breezes are expected to be light, registering at 3 on the Beaufort scale. In the western areas, the winds may pick up slightly in the afternoon, reaching a moderate 3 to 4 on the Beaufort scale. The sea conditions will vary from calm to slightly rough.

Temperature-wise, the day will bring warm conditions, with inland areas reaching around 33 degrees Celsius. Coastal regions can anticipate temperatures around 30 degrees, while the higher mountainous areas will see milder conditions, around 24 degrees.

Tonight, the weather will largely clear up, with mainly clear skies. Winds will predominantly blow from the northwest to the northeast, maintaining their light nature, with speeds ranging from 2 to 3 on the Beaufort scale. The sea conditions will remain calm, with some slight roughness.

Temperature-wise, the night will bring a drop in the mercury, with inland areas cooling to approximately 15 degrees Celsius. Coastal regions can expect temperatures around 17 degrees, while the higher mountainous areas will experience cooler conditions, around 13 degrees.

The upcoming weekend and the start of the new week promise mostly sunny conditions, offering an excellent opportunity for outdoor activities. However, on Monday, there may be a notable increase in high-level cloud cover, providing some relief from the intense sunlight.

Despite the change in weather conditions, temperatures will remain above the average climatological values, ensuring a relatively warm and pleasant start to the week. Residents are encouraged to stay informed about weather updates as the low-pressure system continues to influence the region's weather patterns.
