Reports from around the island suggest fairly awful weather for October. We returned on Sunday after 11 days of clear skies and very hot sunshine. We certainly seem lucky to have missed the current deluge. There seems to be one every autumn. Last year it was around end of October and the year before late November.

Well, the day improved somewhat! Whilst it's not been beach weather here in El Cotillo there have been warm sunny interludes, enough for us to spend the afternoon on the terrace playing dominoes without a shirt. The odd spot of rain & a high of 22c. The wind has been brisk from the south. Clouds are building again now with the forecast saying a chance of thunderstorms tonight. I'll update in the morning if the flaky internet will allow!

El C. 08.15

Yesterday was nowhere near as bad as forecast. The sun appeared mid morning so we had three hours up at the lagoons east of the lighthouse. Clouds returned around 14.00 so we headed back to the village just in time as the heavens opened. Some heavy showers until finally clearing around 17.00.
This morning has dawned pretty much cloud free. 18c on the terrace with light condensation. The sea sounds fairly calm. Light winds from the south. The forecast is for a warm & sunny day with maybe the odd shower.
The wind starts to move direction tomorrow eventually coming from the north east by Saturday when the weather should return to the norm for this time of year.

Caleta 08:00

Temp 19 C

Sky mostly cloud with some breaks to the SW

Wind S 8/10

Humidity 75%

It rained a little over night, but nothing compared to the previous night, and the forecast thunder never happened

Forecast:- sunny and warmish 23/24 C until 13:00 then the rain to return for the rest of the day.

Forecast for rest of the week is pretty bleak, and I have just looked at wind direction and strength  forecast, which has the wind shifting 180" by tomorrow morning, so i assume the weather front that has just passed over us will be blown back this way, deep joy.

El Cotillo.

Late report this morning. Something that seldom happens: I slept in!

We were treated to a superb lightening show to the east last evening which corresponded with the wind moving to from the east.

A bright & sunny morning 21c. Light NE breeze with no condensation on the terrace. The sea sounds calm & it's bright & sunny for now. A few showers are forcast later in the day but we shall be heading for the beach!

El C, 07.30.

Yesterday turned out better than forecast. We spent the majority of the day at the lagoons by the lighthouse. Sunshine until around 15.00 when the cloud increased & we had a light shower. This was enough for SWIMBO to order a return to our apartment. Whilst it remained cloudy it was still warm. Judging by the look of the terrace, we've had some rain overnight.

Currently 21c with no breeze whatsoever. Forecast is for a warm & humid day.

A day of sun & cloud but we still managed a full day at the beach.

26c on the terrace now at 21.30 & it's raining.

An opportunity to play one of my favourite songs:
