The top temperatures were consistently in the 30´s during August in Lanzarote. We had some unusual weather for this time of year and blamed it on Dana! We couldn’t remember it raining in August before, however records show it did in 2005. We also suffered a calima with some Saharan dust obscuring our lovely blue sky for a couple of days.
