A few brief glimpses of el sol so far this morning in Caleta, otherwise quite overcast and particularly heavy cloud out to sea, to the east. However, the wind is from the NNE and the cloud us definitely thinning that way, so fingers crossed for an improving afternoon. Not too bad temperature-wise at 20 degrees, and breeze quite light.

Fuerteventura... Good Friday; weather forecasts predict sunshine all day! Looking at the sky over Cotillo this evening, they are probably correct.

Absolutely beautiful in Caleta today! Not a cloud in the sky since dawn, breeze moderate, and currently reading 24.7 degrees in the shade! Should cloud over a little later, but a real beach, pool and barbecue day!

Would you say it is cooler than usual? Early morning temperatures don't mean a great deal to me! My forecast temperatures don't look great but know from history they generally are on the low side.

El Cotillo... Clear blue sky, sun shining, calm sea, gentle breeze. 15.c on terrace.  A beach day!

Yesterday overcast until lunch then sun came through. Temp 21.c but felt hot in the sun. Breeze was warmer than of late. Temperatures have been lower than usual this winter, with more rain but on the plus side, the island looks much greener. Our apartment seems to be at a constant 20.c evenings. Things are warming up, but we are in April.

Visited some new friends in Tamaragua today, sun out all the time we were there. Driving back to El Cotillo via Villaverde, as we approached V.V. we were met by clouds and an overcast sky, when at La Oliver clouds thinned and we were back in sunshine, it felt like a different island!

El Cotillo... Cloud free seawards, with only a few over the mountains, slight breeze, sun shining, 22c. 17.47pm

We arrived on the island for our week last Thursday 2nd to a glorious sunny day, as was Friday.

Weekend was cloudy and cooler with some sun peeking through.

Monday a mixed bag with a cool wind.
 Tuesday and Wednesday were more sun than clouds and a very respectable 25c in the shade at our Villa. And with the thermometer in the open (poolside table) reached 36c as it would read higher in these circumstances, but gives an idea what temperature is hitting your body lol.

All in all a very good week weather wise, after hearing about all the adverse weather conditions and looks like we got it right for a change!

Weather this morning: "El Cotillo... Sun rising, some cloud over the sea, gentle breeze, small waves 14C. on terrace. 7.54am"

10.30am ish. Went to see the new harbour at Caleta. Weather on leaving Cotillo sunny, then became cloudy as we crossed the island, arrived in Caleta about 11.20am with cloud cover, but by noon the sun had burnt it off. On returning to Cotillo cloud still over the mountains and Villaverde/La Oliver, then back to sunshine in Cotillo until sunset.

El Cotillo... It looks like a beach day. Sun shining with only a few clouds over the sea. Light breeze, small waves.

Spike, it did chill down last night, but we didn't have the strong wind in Cotillo.

Morro Jable - blue skies with the odd cloud to the south and out to sea. Wind a bit on the chilly side, again, like yesterday.
