Crete remains hazy over the next days

Crete remains hazy over the next days - 16 April, 2018


The outlook for Crete remains hazy in the coming days. Only the word "hazy" does not have a metaphorical meaning here but literally, since high dust levels prevail in the atmosphere.

According to predictive models, transfers of African dust over Crete remain high and over the next 3 - 4 days at least.

Increased clouds until midday today make the atmosphere even more "heavy".

African dust until 19 April, 2018
All the best,

Yes, we have had haze here for several days now, mainly with some sunshine as well, but this morning was very gloomy. It drizzled briefly and got very windy, with the sea getting rough, but now the skies are clearer, the wind has dropped and it is sunny and warm.

All the restaurants have been complaining about having to wipe fine Sahara dust off the tables in the mornings lately, and it looks from the forecast you posted that we'll have it for several more days.
