Interesting to look at various island webcams. Cloudy in Corralejo, mostly cloudy in Puerto del Rosario, sunny intervals and cloud in Caleta and sunny in More Jable. Seems to confirm the Canary Island pattern of southern parts being funniest. 8)

Hi Sun Lover it would be helpful if you could let us have web links to the webcams you mention, thanks in anticipation.

The Morro Jable webcam views are from the roof of the Coronado. Be careful, though, it sometimes shows images from previous days. Check the dates/times in the top corner for accuracy.

1.50pm Hot Hot Hot. No cloud. 32c. in shade, 25c. indoors. Having to keep the windows closed to avoid blowing hot air in. I love it!
-----------------------

5.50pm. Just returned from the naturist lagoons, catching up with friends. A warm sea with lots of seaweed and a gentle breeze. The sea has been shifting sand and exposed volcanic bedrock normally covered, so had to paddle and swim with more care. Temperature still 30c. on terrace. At it's highest today, one of my digital thermometers recorded 32.7c.

Hi MLA,
It's good to see your post of the Chinese thermometers, reminded me of my stay at El Cotillo this year.  How accurate are they compared to your digital one?

Hi MLA,
It's good to see your post of the Chinese thermometers, reminded me of my stay at El Cotillo this year.  How accurate are they compared to your digital one?

Morning Tel501, I am not sure how accurate any of them are but can give you the range of temperatures they show. Currently the 3 Chinese bulb thermometer readings are 21c. 21c. and 19c. The two reading 21c. have a wooden surround. The one reading 19c. has a white plastic surround. I have 2 digital thermometers which are reading 20.6c. and 20.8c.

I tend to disregard the white plastic thermometer and average out the others. So today's temperature on terrace is currently 21c.

Hope that helps.

A very wet start to the day in El Cotillo. Torrential rain at daybreak has led to light rain. It's forecast to continue for the rest of the day.

Went for a drive this morning to Betancuria. Arrived back at EC and managed an hour and a half at the lagoons in warm sunshine. The wind has picked up from the south and now covered in cloud. You can sense a storm approaching. The forecast is for high winds and heavy rain until Thursday. Currently 23c on the terrace.
