Lanzarote Weather April

The month of April has been a mixed bag of weather in Lanzarote.

We started the month with a calima, there was a slight haze in the distance, no wind and 27 degrees. The weather changed overnight on the third, there were light showers of rain during the night and strong winds which increased to a yellow alert on the 4th with a warning for up to 70 kmh winds and strong waves.Playa Francesca

The hot weather (30 degrees) then returned for the second week, some days were a cloudy start but cleared to sunshine later. we had the wrong conditions for the kite surfing La Santa Pro competition which delayed the start until the Saturday. We also seemed to be having a run of grey Sundays! Not great for those who work 6 days a week and want to relax on the beach, it wasn’t wet or cold just cloudy for three consecutive Sundays.
