Tindaya - heavy showers at 6am and 9.30am. Mix of sun and cloud during the day but a very chilly, quite strong, breeze meant it never really warmed up.

It's good to see the thermometer still going Martin. I'll get another one for my trip in June, a euro well spent.
                               
    There has been some good photos posted by the weather watchers here, particularly the beach ones. TY

Caleta - Yesterday turned out better than forecast, a lot more sun than cloud, had great early evening drinks on Elba Palace terrace with an Irish couple we had golfed with on Thursday, he was over the moon in more ways than one after the Irish rugby win having watched in an Irish bar down town 😪😪😪



This morning a grey overcast sky a little wind 16C, no condensation.



Todays Caleta forecast -
Partly cloudy all day, temperature to reach 23C 12noon to 4pm but feeling cooler due to wind. UV factor up to 4 at midday.
Wind from N all day currently 17Km/h increasing during day up 30Km/h at 6pm and then easing during the later evening.

Going to have a break and share the load so Johnrgby2 will takeover the Caleta report from tomorrow for the next week.

Tindaya - once again a mix of sun, cloud and cool breeze with a shower first thing. Went down to the beach for a walk late afternoon - in one of the pics you can see why it is known as Playa Mujeer.

Good Morning from Caleta, I am afraid you are stuck with me for the next week as WG has his break ;)

Yesterday, a pleasant rather than a nice day, cloud started to build around 14:00.







Although it started to clear again about 17:00, Temp reached 23 C but in the northerly wind it felt slightly cooler.

17:00





Today

07:00

A very grey start, wind Northerly 16/18 Mph, Temp 16 C

08:00

Much brighter.







Temp. 18 C

Wind. N/Easterly 16/18 Mph.

Visibility. Very Good.

Humidity. 82%.

Sea. A 6/7Ft swell.

UV. Is forecast to be extremely high today, so be careful folks.


FORECAST

Cloud to mostly clear as the day goes on the wind to remain N/Easterly, but strengthen 20/22 Mph late afternoon, Temp to reach low to mid 20,s but feel more like high teens in the wind.

Tindaya - and another day of chilly Northerly winds, pretty strong at times. Some glorious sun but at times an awful lot of cloud. Never really warmed up all day.

In reality, yesterday had some sun but, also periods of cloud and the odd spot of rain. The wind will be strong, northerly, cross/offshore, reaching 30mph by 6.00pm. Temperatures expected in the high teens, but will feel cooler due to the wind.

7.00am. Quite blustery, cloudy and mild. Temperature 17°C.





------------------

9.22am. Still cloudy here, with the wind picking up now.
------------------

9.30am. Sun just starting to clear the clouds, much more blue sky.

Good Morning from Caleta.

The main feature of the weather here since Monday has been the wind, Temps have been in the low to mid 20,s  and we have seen plenty of sun, but the wind has made it feel quite cold, the wind rose above 35 Mph overnight Tuesday, but have been in the 20/28 Mph range all week.

Yesterday 15:00





Today 07:30

A promising if breezy start, no condensation.







Temp 17 C.

Wind. Northerly 14/16 Mph.

Visibility Good.

Humidity. 80%

Sea. a 4/5 Ft swell.

Uv 8.

Forecast

Wind to move N/Easterly and increase 20/22 Mph late morning, Temp to reach low to mid 20,s.

09:15





Temp now 21 C but it feels closer to 16/17 C.
