MLA, thanks for all your on-site weather reports, something I look at daily when back in the UK.  Unfortunately, our paths will not cross this year as we don't arrive in Cotillo for another three weeks. Hopefully we can meet up in the autumn.

Thanks again and safe flight home tonight.

Tom.

Tindaya - much like yesterday, plenty of sun but the cloud and strong, cool northerly winds kept the temps down. Short, sharp shower at 8am. Wind has eased off this evening.

Same as, same as, strong cold wind mainly from North, loads of low grey cloud, plenty of showers, glimpse of the sun from time to time.
Can't get pics uploaded to IMGUR this evening for some reason.

Morning from Caleta, just a quick update as once again we have no internet, {whch will hopefully be resolved tomorrow with the installation of a 4G system}

Weather for last 2/3 Dyas has been less than good, mainly dominated by the wind.

Tuesday

Morning a mix of sunshine with some cloud, clouded over around 13:30 and looked like rain but it never happened, by 16:00 we had a cloudless sky, at 19:00 it was still mid 20,s C and out of the wind a very pleasant evening.

Wednesday

A mix of cloud with the odd bright spell, temp reached low 20,s

Today
Gloomy just about covers it temp is currently 19C with little prospect of it increasing and some rain forecast.
With some luck normal service will resume tomorrow or Saturday.

Tinaday & Corralejo - Thurs & Friday. Unfortunately it's still the same: strong cold winds, mainly wall to wall low grey cloud, bouts of drizzle. Hot-water bottle still in use, thick thermal socks, woolly hat, fire on in evenings in Tindaya .............  :(

Took some pics but haven't bothered loading them - just imagine everything grey/damp/limited visibility.
