What's the weather like? - July 2017
« on: July 01, 2017, 04:16:26 am »
El Cotillo... A remote report to start the month off. Live reports to resume September. The outlook is for a warm, clear, windy day. Temperatures should be in the low to mid 20's. After a blustery night the wind should ease slightly, with speeds around 20 knots.

Not as forecast apart from the wind and the temperature, cloud thinned about 11am but it has been hazy all day so the sun has not been to strong, a very pleasant day for our first day of this trip, currently 26c, cloud coming in on the N to NW wind.

Last evening cloud thinned again to give this sunset,

Others of late afternoon near the Atlantico Centre

   

There was a rain shower at midnight, which woke me up as I had dozed off on the patio, enough to wet things and leave the odd puddle for this morning.

Captain Sensible has described yesterday as a Calima on his Caleta forum and looking round this morning after the rain yes it has been, a lot of cleaning to be done ☹☹

This morning at 6.45 20c out on the patio and 24c in the lounge haze is thinner as the moon was clearer, by 7.30 cans make out high white cloud and but still very hazy in the distance to the east and south west, no condensation and temp still 20c with a slight breeze.  Sun has already risen and is much clearer than yesterday but still hazy.

Slight sea swell odd white horse.

Forecast for the cloud to clear by 10am for a clear sunny day for the rest of the day with temperatures reaching 30c by 5pm.

UV factor of 11 at Noon until 2pm

Wind from the NE to N during the day up to 26km/h and moving NNW to at 24 to 26km/h
