You can find a daily weather forecast for Lanzarote during the weekdays on our Facebook page LanzaroteInformation.
The month of December was drier than average, this can be the wettest month in Lanzarote but we only saw an occasional shower which might mean a wet February 2012, we’ll have to wait and see! Christmas day was warm but a bit grey, where as Boxing Day was an absolute stunner of a day with beautiful blue skies and sunshine. Unfortunately due to the disappearance of Margaret Holt we went awry with our daily forecasts when we joined in the daily searches to find her towards the end of the month. Generally through the month the weather was cool overnight and in the shade but generally sunny and warm in the afternoons especially in sheltered spots out of the wind.
