Normally, by mid-April temperatures here in Lima slowly began to drop off as autumn arrives. By the time May arrives the skies are normally cloudy and the winter foggy season starts. However, this year an unusual weather pattern has left us with summer temperatures late into the year. This year skies remain clear and we are seeing distant views not normally seen in Lima's smoggy haze.
The local news media has been reporting that a current of warm water from Australia has moved in along the Peru coast. This warm water has caused the ocean temperatures to rise significantly and has greatly changed the climate for this fall season. Today our temperatures were near 90 and they may climb to 95 by the middle of May. (Temperatures would normally be in the lower 60's)
