Got up to thick fog around 6am this morning, couldn't see hand in front of face (perhaps it was the fact the sun hadn't risen yet!) Everything outside dripping wet with condensation.

Travelling through Villaverde towards Corralejo this morning around 9am was very spooky, thick low cloud or fog in places. I stopped just outside Villaverde and took a couple of pictures:

Lajares emerging from the bank of dirty coloured (calima influenced?) fog:


Looking across the top of Corralejo over to Lobos & Lanzarote, a strange white cotton wool like cloud sat in the Bocayna Straight:


The poor visibility stayed in the Straight all day, fog horns echoing for miles.

Arriving back on the west coast visibility was slightly improved but by about 6pm the cloud/fog was rolling back in and the Betancuria range was soon out of sight.

Yesterday very much as forecast, except Temp were around 29 C at best, but lack of wind made it feel a lot hotter. A humid night Temp never went below 22 C that combined with the fog horn at The Marina blasting away all night made it a fairly sleepless night.

Today 07:30

Very hazy again with some condensation on the terraces.

Temp. 21 C.

Sky. very hazy.

Wind Easterly 1/3 MPH

Humidity 78%

Visibility poor

Sea. Flat calm

Forecast:- Temp to reach high 20,s low 30,s wind to increase early afternoon to 12/15 MPH and to move North and then N/West, visibility to improve as wind moves all in all another pleasant day.

It is now 11:30 wind is now circa 8/10 MPH temp is 26 C and visibility is now good.

Normal service resumed tomorrow with photographs ::)
