« on: August 01, 2015, 07:06:15 am »
El Cotillo... Fairly clear start some cloud over a calm sea, gentle breeze. The forecast is for more cloud during the morning but clearing in the afternoon. Temp mid 20's.

Still looking good sun shining with only minimal cloud so far.

El Cotillo... A very similar start this morning as yesterday with thin broken cloud layer and patches of blue sky. Very calm sea with little wind. If it follows yesterday's pattern then the cloud should burn off during the morning, leaving a pleasant warm sunny day. Temp mid+ 20's.

Caleta - slightly unusual day today. Clear skies over the town and to the south first thing, but a band of cloud to the north and west. Drove into PDR mid morning, and found quite heavy cloud cover from Playa Blanca northwards, PDR itself pretty overcast. Thin cloud reaching over Caleta around midday, burned back again by 2.00 pm, but thickish cloud still visible to the north and west. Warm though, currently showing 29.8 in the shade at 4.00pm, and the wind is moderate. So, a very pleasant day here today, just don't venture too far north on inland if you want sunshine!

It would be interesting to hear from the south of the island, what the weather is like there.

Caleta - yes, same here too, calima conditions. About 7.30 this morning it appeared as if we had quite heavy cloud, and cycling down the coast it appeared the same in all directions. However, as the sun got higher it became more obvious that it's more a thick haze than cloud, and right now, gone midday with the sun overhead, it has 'burned through' and is casting strong shadows. Wind is moderate, and it has been very warm indeed from early morning, currently recording 30.1 degrees.if back in the UK you'd swear it was getting ready for a good old thunderstorm....but I suspect we may have to wait a month or two for our next drops of rain!

El Cotillo... Still very hazy with the Calima. A mixed forecast depending on which weather site you look at, some say there will be light rain others sunshine. Overcast at the moment which may clear later leaving a mix of sun and cloud this afternoon. Calm sea with a gentle breeze. Temps should reach mid 20's.

El Cotillo... The sky did clear in Cotillo late afternoon, can't say for anywhere else. It would be interesting to hear the varying weather conditions in other parts.

Caleta - some light cloud earlier this morning, mainly stretching to the north and west, but a lot less dust in the atmosphere. Although we've had none of the promised rain, it seems less humid an a bit fresher, although still very warm. Currently just gone 1.00pm, no significant cloud over Caleta, sun is shining, and temperature in the shade is 31.4.

Reached 41C in the sun on the beach by the RIU hotels, Corralejo today. The wind dropped completely for about half an hour and there was a mass exodus from the beach to the sea!
Thunder and lightning and a very small shower just now - Corralejo.

El Cotillo... Heavy rain, thunder and lightening, at 5 past midnight last night. Overcast morning, wind died down, calm sea. Temp 22c. Mixed forecasts for today, some say sun all day others cloud and showers, another forecast hedging is bets, says there will be cloud in the morning and sun this afternoon. All forecast a warm day with temps in the high 20's low 30's.

9.45 Sunny here at the moment, slight breeze

About midnight last night in, I was watching the lightning from the West of the Island. Spectacular.

Hot and muggy today.

El Cotillo... Drove to Corralejo yesterday morning leaving an overcast Cotillo arrived to a hot sunny day there. On returning 12.00 noon hazy sunshine in Cotillo which eventually burnt off.

Todays weather, thin grey/white cloud cover, calm sea, gentle breeze. Temp 23c. Outlook, cloudy most of the day possibly clearing in the afternoon, temp high 20's low 30's. Wind is expected to pickup quite a bit this evening bringing cloud. 

We have just had rain, it feels fresher now. Still 23c

Corralejo. Thunder & lightning just finished - been going it hammer and tongs for about 1.5 hrs. Several very heavy showers, probably just about enough to wash the leaves and start the weeds growing! Still 26C outside but feels more comfortable than before the storm.

El Cotillo... Like Corralejo, thunder and lightning last night. We went out looking for the meteor shower but too cloudy, it was made up for, by a fantastic lightning show above the clouds.

Todays weather: Very windy, overcast, with occasional spots of rain. Sea choppy. Outlook, cloudy today and tomorrow, sunshine on Saturday.
