Temperatures shot up to 23 degrees centigrade last night as a warm wind arrived from the south.
During the night wind speeds increased buffeting the area with strong gusts.
The winds have brought with them a fair amount of fine dust probably originating in the deserts of North Africa as air rushes around a low pressure system centred over Italy.
According to the Turkish storm calendar, derived from the Coptic weather calendar, this warm wind is an annual feature.
The calendar predicts the key annual weather features as an aid to sailors and is based on centuries of weather watching.
The calendar says the 6th March is the “3rd warmth increase on earth” suggesting strong warm winds from the south.
More Exciting Weather to Come
The warm temperatures are expected to finish on Sunday as the weather front moves away.
Rain and thunder storms could mix in too.
According to the Turkish storm calendar unsettled weather could return on 11, 12, 15, 17, 23 26, 29 and 30th March.
Interestingly the 11th March last year saw a spectacular tornado rip along the bay or Kalkan so this old weather calendar is one worth watching.
