What's the weather like? - February 2017
« on: February 01, 2017, 04:50:34 am »
El Cotillo... The forecast is for a blustery, bright sunny day. Temperatures should reach the high teens.

Tides:
High   3:59AM   2.22m     First Light   7:16AM
Low   10:18AM   0.49m    Sunrise   7:41AM
High   4:25PM   2.06m     Sunset   6:36PM
Low   10:31PM   0.58m    Last Light   7:01PM
-------------

Hope it is like that in Caleta when we arrive tomorrow.  ;D

W.G. there is a severe weather warning of storm conditions around the northwest quadrant of Spain, Bay of Biscay, for the next few days. I trust your flight will not be delayed. On the bright side, once here, the wind is due to drop tomorrow with sunshine through to Sunday, which should make good golf or beach days.

http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/marine-shipping-forecast#fitzroy
----------------

8.15am Overcast, grey and blustery. 16c. No sun in sight.
----------------

9.45am Just had a very light rain shower but now clearing up nicely, lots of blue sky. Breezy.





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

Weather today very much as forecasted, sunshine most of the day and windy. The wind started to ease late afternoon, hopefully back down to a gentle breeze by tomorrow.

Bit late today posting as we were out golfing at 07.30 this morning and then had to get ready for friends arriving

Cloudy start at 07.30 improved as the morning wore on breeze got up, at 15.45 on patio it is reading 36c in direct sun and 24c in shade nice clear sky which is forecast to last for at least another 48 hours so should be a great day tomorrow and Tuesday.

Looking east from Atlantico Centre about 17 15 last night

There appears to have been a problem with website this morning so very late with post, here is a post I have prepared and updated as the day has progressed

07.45 - Well they were certainly wrong with the forecast I looked at and posted above, at 1am it was still a clear sky but by 5am full cloud cover which we still have at 0745 so no sunrise pictures this morning, strong breeze so no condensation, 16.5c on the patio.
Forecast is for cloud to break up from 8am and for clear sunny day by 12 noon, wind 19km gusting 22km from N so should be a pleasant afternoon

10.00 some blue sky appearing so odd burst of sunshine, temperature up to 22c in what little sun there is and 20c in the shade, wind definitely from the N.

Yesterdays sunrise looking east down 2nd fairway from the tee.

Tides:
Low   3:09AM   0.78m     First Light   7:13AM
High   9:25AM   1.86m     Sunrise   7:38AM

The cloud did begin to breakup late morning, but never fully cleared. Temperature however did get up to 23c. in the shade.

El Cotillo... The outlook is for a warm, cloud free sunny day, with a gentle breeze. Temperatures should be in the low to mid 20's. This is a similar forecast as for yesterday, which did not materialise. Lets hope it's accurate today.

Tides:
Low   4:27AM   0.69m        First Light   7:13AM
High   10:39AM   1.93m     Sunrise   7:37AM
Low   4:52PM   0.66m        Sunset   6:41PM
High   11:07PM   2.06m     Last Light   7:05PM

7.05am Too dark for a decent picture, however it's a clear cloudless sky with a very slight breeze and some condensation. Temp 14c.

8.30am Temperature up to 15c.

Caleta -  07.20 Clear cloudless sky nice sunrise in prospect, 10c on patio so coolest it has been all week, some condensation, no breeze at all.
Forecast for a sunny day with a clear sky all day temp mid 20's probably will be much higher, max wind 17km varying  WNW to NE

Some images of our tour of the north of the Island yesterday finishing with the sunset in El Cotillo.

Morning from Caleta, last post for this trip  :(

Yesterday lived up to forecast clear sky and sunshine all day the thermometer in the direct sunshine on our fairly sheltered patio got over 40c again. Cloud did start to appear after sunset and there has been a fair cloud cover during the night, been a breeze so no condensation on the patio this morning and the temperature at 06.30 was 14c.

Forecast for today cloud to clear by 11am sunny afternoon and clear sky until 23.00hrs, temperatures be mid 20's but based on our week here they will get higher in the sun in sheltered spots as the wind is to vary NNE to NE 26 to 32km/h so will be quite cooling.

Yesterdays Sunrise




Out and about Gran Tarajal, Las Playitas  Caleta

El Cotillo... A mix of sun and cloud today, with the cloud clearing late afternoon. Currently the sky is relatively clear, and 15c. expected to reach the high teens later. No condensation and a light breeze, which must be blowing in from the sea, as it sounds louder than usual.

WG, I trust you had a safe journey home. Looks like you will be having a similar day weather wise, but 14°C cooler.

Looks like a bit of a North/South divide, again today. Take a look at the Coronado webcam 1 in Morro Jable. Blowing SW 30km/h and overcast, sea rough and looks like rain any minute.
Yesterday the south had about 3mm rain on/off. Went to PDR & it looked dry?
