Yesterday, was again as forecast dominated by the wind, the sun never appeared through the cloud, Temp maxed at 21 C around 14:30, at 20:30 wind was blowing at 23 MPH and Temp was 14 C.

Caleta 08:00










Temp 16 C.

Sky mostly cloud but some clear areas.

Wind Easterly 23/24

Humidity 51%.

Sea a 1 metre swell.

Forecast:- It was for a similar day to yesterday, but it has not started that way, it is now 12:00, Temp has reached 21 C and there are some bright patches, but the wind is making it feel much colder, As Woe 10 has posted there are weather warnings for very high winds, I have just looked at the Maritime forecast, and they are for casting winds of 25/27 I will report tomorrow, if I have not been blown to Gran Canaria ;)

Tindaya - as expected, very windy although the sun did shine today and if you could find a sheltered spot it was very pleasant (if wearing Eskimo gear!). I walked through a tourist complex in Corralejo this morning wearing my full winter kit (including woolly hat) and I had to giggle at the tourists in bikinis staring at me as if I was from Mars - I can remember thinking exactly the same of 'the locals' when we were the tourists here!
I think we are paying now for the days of exceptionally calm weather we had recently.
I saw on the news that a cruise ship decided not to dock at Taralejo today because of the conditions.

0 years ago We had a Pub outside a Seaside resort in South Wales, Porthcawl, AKA Pac a Mac Bay you had a similar situation there,I go into town to collect the Fruit and Veg for The Restaurant, with  a raincoat and hat, and the holiday makes would be walking around in shorts and Tee shirts, albeit with plasticmacks over them   :D
On the question of Cruise ships The Balmoral was due in to Rosario at 06:00, and is still off Gran Tarajal, not sure thats a weather issue though.

Yesterday The sun shone for most of the day, but the wind perststed and The Temp never got above 22 C

Caleta 08:00







Temp 16 C

Sky. Mostly clear, other than the normal early morning haze.

Wind. S Easterly 22 Mph

Humidity. 51%

Sea. ROUGH

Forecast:- a mainly sunny day, with wind moving further southerly midday before returning Easterly early evening.

I have just looked at The marine wind forecast, and I am sorry Tamara wind is forecast to remain roughly where it is until at least Thurs 06/01 and then it is forecast to be South Westerly, although it is supposed to moderate to about 18/20 MPH from next Tuesday.

Following on from the last 2 posts,(sorry JR got in with todays post whilst I was also posting) the body is a wonderful thing, how it gets acclimatized to the local conditions, a year ago we would happily sit out in the cool evening, 17c, in shorts and T Shirt this last trip put a jacket on! Mrs WG wouldn't sit out much in the past now sits out quite a bit.

Yesterday was windy here in Windermere really swirling around, south edge of Storm Connor.
Better today on northerly edge of the high so cooler at 4c.

We've had a breezy day but not too bad, and lots of lovely sunshine. The wind died away to a light breeze for most of the evening but it is back now with a vengeance! Similar thing happened yesterday as well, quite strange really, gets your hopes up for a quiet night and then slams into the house again.

Is it 4, or 5 days now, that planes have been landing from the North?  I don't recall it ever being so many consecutive days before.
May be wrong as I don't look all the time.   :D

They try to take off into the wind, it saves fuel, as they get more lift, and as the wind has been coming from the East or South East for more than a week now that is the direction they will take off in. It is set to stay that way until at least the end of the week.the best part
