Average daily high for August is 27c but yes it could well be above 30 . It is also quite humid in August . Not a month I would chose to visit, personally

In all my visits I have been fortunate to only experience a Calima once . Was worse than being in Dubai in mid summer !

A Calima is a pocket of very warm air that often drifts across the islands from mainland Africa, it sends temps soaring with lots of airborn dust meaning for hazy like conditions. They can last for a few hours and even up to a week !!
