What's the weather like? - December 2016
« on: December 01, 2016, 04:55:29 am »
El Cotillo... It looks like it's going to be a cracking day today. The Outlook is for a light breeze, sunshine, and temperatures in the low to mid 20's. If it's anything like yesterday, which was very still and warm, it will make a great beach day.

Tides:
High   2:02AM   2.22m     First Light   7:04AM
Low   8:17AM   0.58m      Sunrise   7:29AM
High   2:21PM   2.1m       Sunset   5:59PM
Low   8:26PM   0.63m      Last Light   6:25PM

For what it's worth, here is the outlook for PDR this month.



9.00am

El Cotillo... Very still, with only a slight breeze. 25c. in the shade. Hazy sunshine with a thin cloud cover. Time to go to the lagoons for a swim and to check the sea temperature, I expect it will be around 22c.

12.30pm






Just returned from the naturist lagoons which were very busy. The sea was 22c. with lots of people cooling off. In our pod it was 25c. in the shade and 36c. in the sun.

Sun through high cloud in Corralejo this morning, partially cleared as the day went on and it got very warm and pleasant, very little breeze.



The sunset beat me home so I stopped off in La Oliva to take some pics:

The sun disappeared behind Montana Tindaya as I was parking the car

El Cotillo... We had a relatively clear afternoon with a light breeze. Sun setting with more blue sky than cloud, temperature now 21c. Looks like better weather is on its way tomorrow, and a sunny beach day Monday.

Yesterday continued as it had started grey and overcast all day it started raining around 13:30 and rained for an hour not heavily, but enough to get you seriously wet, there was a bright patch out to the Eat mid afternoon, but the sun failed to make an appearance, even The Moon was only visible for around 10 mins. Having said that The Temp reached 23 C and out of the wind was quite pleasant, around 19:30 the wind dropped, so it was a pleasant enough evening

Caleta 07:45

The Sun is there somewhere


Looking North


Looking NW where the weather is supposed to be coming from



Temp 19 C

Sky mostly broken cloud.

Wind WNW 6/8

Humidity 62%
Sea is calm hardly a wave.

Forecast:- Sky to clear, Temp to reach mid 20<S wind to move NW but not increase in strength so should be a decent day.

09:45
Sky is clearing Temp at 22 c.


11:15 Temp is now 27 in the sun there is some light scattered cloud, and the wind is still 8/9 although it has backed slightly NW, and according to my info the wind in the North east IE Cotillo is 16/18 strange when you realise it is only a 35 minute drive away.

OH NO IT DIDN'T

I will take the last few posts as tongue in cheek, and here is my report for this morning -

Compared to the -2c we left Windermere with at 2am to drive to M/c airport where it was 4c, we arrived yesterday in Caleta to very pleasant temperature 23c in the lounge and got to 24c+ on patio during the afternoon, probably 60% cloud cover.

I can confirm JR's comment re how calm the sea was because as we came in to circle round to land I commented on the flat sea, with light cloud over Caleta and just south but much heavier cloud over to the west. 

At 6pm it was still 21c  and this morning at 5.50am it is 18c outside with cloud cover that has come in over the last 15 minutes as when I woke up it was a clear sky with the stars shining brightly.

Todays forecast a mix of cloud and sun with temps in the mid 20's humidity 79% with1% chance of rain on the Google forecast & 0% on another forecast and wind up to 20Km/h varying N to NE.

Sunrise 07.35hrs and sunset 17.59hrs.

A few pictures later.
