Gran Tarajal area: Weather got lively overnight, very high wind. Just recorded gusts of well over 80km/h.
Although we had more rain than Caleta (7mm over previous 24hrs), there's not much about now, just the odd spot, but overcast and threatening more.
Morro Jable webcam shows sea pretty rough and rain.
Forecast says it will quieten down after lunch.
