27/4 We're not sure where the sun is hiding today, we're going to blame it on the changeable wind which is swinging back from the South to the North West during the day bringing up to a 55% chance of rain or in the case of Haría 85%. The sun is peeking out from behind the rain clouds on the forecast so it could be sunshine and showers. Top temp 23 degrees. We don't normally cover the forecast at the weekends so we've had a peek ahead, you'll be pleased to know the sunshine is back!

30/4 Mainly sunshine with a few cloudy intervals for Lanzarote today. The wind is 15-20 km/h from the North and top temperatures range from 22-24 degrees.
