Lima skies will have less sun starting Thursday


Soak in those last few hot, sunny days of early winter because they’re drying up and the sun-less skies are coming to reign over Lima.

Starting Thursday there will be less sunny skies in Lima, reports the National Service of Meteorology and Hidrology of Peru (Senamhi).

Today, tomorrow and Wednesday will continue the trend of sunny afternoons and warm temperatures, but Thursday will be have a marked difference.

Senamhi meteorologists explain the change due to stronger winds intensifying on the Lima coast bringing colder air and heavier, wetter clouds.

The temperature has been between between 24 and 25 but will drop to between 21 and 22 starting Thursday. Starting around next Wednesday the temperature will continue dropping to between 19 and 20 and later in the week to between 18 and 18.5 (degrees celsius).

Lima will feel heavier clouds, lower temperatures and stronger winds by the end of the week.
