When I was over last November I brought my thermals with me. By the weather reports I'm seeing here it looks like I'm going to need to pack them again for my holiday next week ::)


Have mine out already but not for taking to Fuerteventura next week but for here in Windermere today - we are on the southern edge of storm Hector and the wind is blowing a Hooley 40 to 50 MPH between 9am and 1pm

Looking forward to the Fuerteventura weather when we arrive next week for 3 weeks.

Caleta.

Yesterday again as forecast, the cloud cleared by early afternoon, and temps were in the mid 20,s, but as is now becoming normal a Northerly or North Easterly wind with a definite chill in it blowing at anything from 18/24 Mph makes it feel like December.
On the upside, most sites are forecasting the wind to drop to single figures from Saturday, { There may be hope Tel }

Today

07:45

A repeat of yesterday grey and breezy

Temp. 20 C.

Wind. Northerly. 15/17 Mph.

Visibility. Very good.

Humidity. 69%

Sea. A 3/4 ft swell.

UV. 9.

Forecast:- a similar day to yesterday, temps in the mid 20,s, but possibly more cloud than yesterday.

Tindaya & Corralejo - grey, very very windy, cool, drizzle and rain yesterday morning. This afternoon we had a glorious couple of hours early afternoon, very hot, but the cloud soon put paid to the sun.




If the weather is getting you down please see my post in the Events section for an alternative to the beach! Ruta de las Tapas!

A better day than forecast, cloud as forecast started to clear 10:00 and by11:30 there was hardly a cloud in the sky temps were in the high 20,s by early afternoon and stayed that way until 19:30 when some cloud built up, thermometer was still showing 23 C. at 21:00, but as is now the norm the secret was to get out of the N/easterly wind that blew all day at around 14/16 Mph.

Today
08:00

A similar start to yesterday grey but the odd patch of blue and not as windy.

Temp. 23C

Wind. N/Easterly 8/10 Mph

Visibility. Very Good.

Sea A 2/3 Ft swell.

UV. 9.

Forecast:- a similar day to yesterday temps forecast for mid 20,s cloud to mostly clear by late morning wind to stay very much as is.

Tindaya & Corralejo - a poor start in Tindaya, low cloud and rain, slight breeze from NW. Started to clear by mid morning. I arrived in Corralejo around 11am and it was looking much more promising than of late. became very warm and pleasant. Still a fair amount of cloud around at times though. Back in Tindaya mid afternoon where it was lovely until about 7pm when the cloud started building up again. Breeze had moved round to W but still very light. Several intervals of drizzle this evening (in sympathy with England's luck lustre performance in the football, in my opinion!).

Yesterday again very much as forecast, although we did not have the "virtually clear" skies forecast, what cloud there was, was very scattered and very high, temps in the high 20,s, from early afternoon, with a light breeze which did move around a little but was predominantly from the N/East.

In and around Antigua between 14:00 and 16:30, slightly windier, but temps around 27/28 C.













Back in Caleta 19:00





Temp still in the mid 20,s, and the wind has increased slightly by 20;30 it had got quite blustery, but then around 21:00 it almost died again.

08:30

A similar start to yesterday maybe a tad brighter

Temp. 21 C.

Wind. Northerly 3/8 Mph.

Humidity. 89%.

Visibility. Very Good.

Sea. A 3/4 Ft swell, which is forecast to lessen to 1/2 later in the day.

UV. 9.

Forecast:- a similar day to yesterday light winds and temps in the high 20,s this afternoon following a cloudy morning, the cloud may take longer than yesterday to clear and the wind is forecast to move around quite a bit, currently Northerly it is forecast to move N/Easterly mid-morning before swinging S/Westerly then East/ South Easterly before returning N/Easterly by 21:00.

Tindaya & Corralejo - a grey start again with very little breeze. In Corralejo by 10.30 where it seemed much the same although getting quite hot. It was lunchtime before it really cleared and then it was glorious. Back in Tindaya the sun set behind a bank of cloud again.

Well arrived safely Tuesday evening 7pm to a clear sunny sky and a nice warm breeze.

Yesterday, Wednesday,  seemed to follow the pattern of the last few days a cloudy with little wind start with the cloud clearing late morning to leave a sunny  warm 
afternoon with the wind picking up temperatures reached the mid to high 30'sC in a sunny sheltered spot.

10.50am
 


This morning 18C at 7.30am a little wind and clear sky to N round to SW but heavy cloud out to South, East and NE

Tindaya - wall to wall low grey cloud again with a moderate breeze from the N. The cloud broke in places this afternoon for a couple of hours and although it was nice and warm the breeze still had a bit of a chill in it. By 5.30pm the cloud was all joined up again. Around 8.30pm there was half an hour when the sun got through a large gap but no visible sun set.

This morning little wind grey sky and 19C at 7am


Forecast much as yesterday cloud to decrease during the day to leave a mixture of sun and cloud temperatures in the mid to high 20'sc winf 17 to 20 mph from the N with a UV factor of up to 11 at 2pm

Tindaya & Corralejo - grey, more grey, even more grey ……….. fairly brisk breeze varied between NW & NE, some very light drizzle at times. In Tindaya I didn't see any blue sky until early evening! However the cloud cleared enough for us to see the sun set for a change. Reached 25C during the day but down to 19C by sun set.
