Compared with July, the temperatures in August were more bearable. Even still, the average temperature recorded in Torrevieja was 27.9 degrees. The hottest day was the 13th when the temperature reached 38.2 degrees.
It wasn't just the heat that made life uncomfortable, the humidity was also very high and it stayed hot during the night making sleep difficult for some.
September has brought some relief with highs in the mid twenties. However, it has come with the strong possibility of rain and thunder. The rain the other day was "dirty", coming as it did from North Africa. Let us hope that further rain is a lot cleaner otherwise I will have to hose down the paving and wash our cars on a regular basis.
