Yesterday turned out as forecast if not slightly better with the cloud starting to clear by 9.30am, a very pleasant day.

This morning at 6am it was an almost clear sky overhead with the stars clearly visible for the first time this trip, 17c on the patio and little or no breeze and the slightest hint of condensation.

7am a great sunrise, picture later.

Todays Forecast - A great start to the day but some cloud building mid morning but clearing by 4pm to give a great late afternoon and evening.
Temperature up to 24c from 1pm increasing to 25 at 5pm and a UV factor of up to 11 @ 1pm
Wind 18 to 22km/h from N to NNE possibly NE mid afternoon.

Another day where they got the forecast almost right and again it was better than forecast, 6.45pm last evening on our patio it was 40c in the direct sun and 27c in the shade.

Yesterdays Pictures -

 

 


7am clear sky overhead with a few clouds to the east over the sea and you could see the full sunrise, a littler cooler this morning at 15c with a small amount of condensation and little or no wind.

Todays Forecast - A great start to the day clear sky until 11am with cloud then building and a forecast of a shower of rain from 2pm heavier at 3pm then lightening off. Temperature up to 25c at mid-day dropping slightly during the afternoon but back to 25 at 5pm and a UV factor of up to 10 @ Noon Wind never above 11km/h from WNW to start moving to ESE which I think is what will bring the afternoon rain, then moving back to N during the evening.

Can anyone identify this creature I came across today at the beach. I think it's some sort of urchin or sea slug. It looked quite gross. Tap photo to enlarge, if you dare!

El Cotillo... The outlook is for a warm sunny day with a gentle breeze. An ideal beach day. Temperatures should be in the low to mid 20's, but feeling hotter in the sun as there is little wind. What breeze there is will be a gentle northerly cross/shore, of around 5 to 8 knots.
