Let's hope it is moving south east MLA, still cloud cover here 23.6c on the patio. Been a very pleasant morning for doing the odd jobs and weeding.

As Deso says rather be here with cloud cover & 20C+ than in cold Blighty   :D :D

6pm update cloud hasn't cleared and breeze has got up to a wind with temp 20c

Unlikely WG wind is blowing South Westerly, but we might catch the edge of it.

Yesterday was cloud cover all day, during afternoon had a walk down to beach where they were working on the regeneration project even though it was a holiday day, beach in front of Atlantico Centre deserted.  During the evening the cloud did break up and the moon showed its face







Currently 18c on the terrace with no condensation, broken cloud with the odd bright star and a moderate breeze.

The forecast is for it to be similar to yesterday temperature to reach mid 20c's wind from NE to ENE varying 15 to 18Km/h with up to 7% chance of rain on Google and 0% on AccuWeather

More later

The cloud curse of WG was banished at 08:00 when the sun pierced the overcast sky and normality was returned to the lagoons of El Cotillo.

Glorious sunshine this afternoon on the patio at Lajares with light breeze from the north east.

Should be a nice evening for a beer at Sotovento bar and restaurant back at Cotillo for Mrs GF and me.

Yesterday turned out better than forecast with temperature in the sun getting up to 32c and 24c in the shade.
There has bee a very heavy over night dew and a lot of condensation every where this morning, at 6.30am it was 15c on the patio, no breeze and a fairly clear sky with plenty of stars.

7.30am the sun is starting to come up, but the temp has dropped to 14c.

Forecast temperatures up to mid 20's, but me thinks it will be higher as the cloud is to clear by mid-day with sunshine this afternoon, breeze in the morning from the west of up to 15km/h moving round to the SSE and up to 18km/h, no rain forecast.

10am yesterday towards JR's



Last nights sunset over Fuerteventura Golf Course



This mornings sunrise

El Cotillo... The outlook is for a warm sunny day, with temperatures in the mid to low 20's.

Currently 19c. on upper terrace with a gentle breeze and some condensation, but not as heavy as reported by WG. A calm sea. Thin wispy clouds and sunshine.  It should be a good beach day.

High   7:49AM   1.94m   Sunrise   7:34AM

Was in Cotillo about the same time you were posting this morning's report MLA.

Now back at Lajares where the wind has stiffened to quite strong at times.

Good day on the beach for a good sand-blasting or exfoliation as some refer to it.

An absolutely beautiful sunset yesterday evening at Cotillo with dozens of walkers and photographers down by the old harbour and three die hard body boarders out on the break trying to catch the last few waves of the day.

El Cotillo... The outlook is for a cloudy start which should burn off during the morning, leaving a warm sunny day. In the open it will be quite breezy with some strong gusts, eventually easing late afternoon. Temperatures expected to be in the low 20's.

Tides:
Low   2:48AM   0.83m     First Light   7:09AM
High   9:01AM   2m         Sunrise   7:35AM
Low   3:27PM   0.69m     Sunset   6:00PM
High   9:43PM   2.01m    Last Light   6:26PM


Unless there is a sudden mass of cloud, the outlook is wrong. Clear skies here, with a gentle breeze and calm sea. No condensation, temperature 19c. 

7.10am

Early start this morning MLA, keep the cloud we have had a clear starry sky all night, at 6.30 it was 15c on the patio with a little condensation on the glass table but non else where, there was hardly any or no breeze, I have never know such a long period of time with so little wind.

Forecast wispy cloud all day so plenty of sunshine temperatures up to mid 20's, but I bet based on last couple of days it will be high 20's low 30's, wind varying 11 to 22 km/h and moving SSW to E during the day and then this evening moving ENE bringing in cloud.

Deso just for you arriving.

Yesterday turned out great with temperatures as reported, the cloud thickened as forecast late afternoon but cleared overnight with a starry sky from 3am onwards, there was condensation forming late evening but at 6.30am there was none and the temp was 18c.

Forecast for today – sun and cloud with temperatures in the mid 20’s, but based on last few day will probably be higher, wind from SE / ESE 13 to 18km/h during the day moving to NE during evening but weakening to 7km/h.

Sorry no new pics from yesterday will see what happens in next hour as then off to play in the Christmas golf comp at Las Salinas

Well yesterday turned out much better than forecast, clear blue sky from around 10am, not too much wind, and it looks like the clear sky has remained overnight. When I got in from Golf just after 2pm yesterday afternoon the thermometer was read 38c in the sun!!!   At 6.20 it was 13c with no wind and a fair amount of condensation, but not as much as the other morning.  7.20 update temp dropped to 12c and condensation increased

Today’s forecast – Clear sky until lunch time and then partly sunny becoming partly cloudy and clearing again later in the afternoon early evening. Wind starting NW swinging to SE at lunch time moving more to the E and by this evening NE speeds of 7to 9km/h so a relatively calm day, NICE for our last full day of this trip.
