Tindaya - a very pleasant day, not quite as hot and a fair amount of cloud from time to time, little or no breeze. For once the weather was exactly the same in Puerto when we popped over there mid-afternoon. Lateral visibility still not brilliant although vertically it's fine, lots of stars to be seen.

Tindaya - a day of mainly cloud and no breeze. White or pale grey cloud this morning, darker and lower cloud this afternoon/evening. Really looked like a storm was brewing teatime but nothing came of it. Temperatures very pleasant. When the sun appeared in short bursts it seemed very hot by comparison.

El Cotillo... Like Windermeregolfer arrived safely after a packed RA flight. Drove over the mountains towards a clear sky and sunset. Temperature 25c.

8.15pm




Looking at the amount of red dust on the terrace, there must have been some substantial  calima over the last 3 months.
--------------------------

This morning, clear sky with bright stars. Temperature 21c on terrace. No condensation, gentle breeze. Pictures when light. The outlook is for cloud over the next few days and total cloud cover today. 

Tides:
High   3:16AM   2.22m
Low   9:25AM   0.54m
High   3:31PM   2.21m
Low   9:41PM   0.57m

7.30am

Welcome back MLA, but you could have left cloudy weather back in UK.

Cloudy morning so far on the north east side  in Corralejo this morning, usually burns off in the afternoon but just looks it might take longer than usual.

Must catch up sometime.

Hi Beachlife, came over your way for some provisions. As you predicted, the cloud started to burn off just after lunch. Back in Cotillo now, with a mix of sun and cloud. The wind is picking up a bit.

Internet issues yesterday so to keep you updated here is the report I prepared -

It didn't rain and the 41% chance of overnight rain didn't materialise. Yesterday (Tuesday) was mainly cloudy and pleasant temperatures mid to high 20's, cloud cleared early evening and we had a nice sunset with plenty of stars visible and clear 1/8 moon once it went dark.  It was quite eerie sat out last night we have never known it so still on the Island, not a breath of wind the shade sails I had put up yesterday didn't flap for long periods of time.

Tuesdays Sunset


Wednesday - 19c on the patio at 7am this morning, temperatures similar to yesterday forecast with less cloud and very very low risk of rain, light winds of 3mph from NNE currently to 8mph from E mid-afternoon. Great clear sky during the evening with plenty of stars and a crescent moon.

Today 18c on patio at 8am very heavy dew overnight and hardly a breath of wind, clear sky but a bit hazy in the distance.  Currently 24c forecast for it to get to high 20's  wind up to 12mph from NNE  in other words a nice day in store.

This mornings sunrise

It was very pleasant for golf yesterday, pity golf wasn't better :D

Little more cloud this morning 17C on Patio at 7am, some dew but not as heavy as earlier in the week, forecast for temperature to get to mid / high 20's which could mean 30c+ in the sun when it is out, cloud to increase from lunch time onwards, but they have had that wrong the last couple of days, wind currently 13km/h from NW, but based on the palms I am looking at there is very little or no breeze, to strengthen this afternoon up to 22km/h from NE

In summary another nice day 8) 8)

Morning all, last post for this trip  :( :(

At 7am this morning 21C on the patio with a strong breeze / light wind, forecast for fair amount of cloud clearing for a couple of hours about 11am then thickening slightly this afternoon, but based on yesterday I think it could be quite light cloud cover, wind varying 20 to 24km/h from NNE to NE
