    We are currently on a site next to the Med in Le Barcares and heading onwards to Spain next week.

    My question is:- Is there any sun around the Med at the moment?.

    It is very cloudy and slightly damp with some occasional light drizzle here, whilst travelling through France since Tuesday we have encountered Rain, Snow, Ice, Strong Winds, but no Sun.

    Please, Please can anyone in Spain tell me if and when there will be some sun.

    Why ?

    Get yer finger out and get on a boat. €190 return and cheap living over there.

    I'm not there, it was a FUN collective "we" I meant, I'm stuck in inches of snow with a MH in pieces. And like you hoping Benidorm will be at last nice and warm next month.

    Rain, wind and storms can blight a Spanish winter, but Spain has a fantastic warm and sunny winter every ten years or so, unfortunately, that was last year:Laughing:

    I can confirm that all previous reports of lousy weather are true.
    Currently battling through a gale trying to get to the Med.
    5m swells outside, rearranged the contents of my cabin twice.:RollEyes:
    Surprisingly, soup was "on" for lunch...:BigGrin:
    We're off Morocco at the mo, I'd be surprised if even they are getting much Sun.:Eeek:

    We have been at Benidorm since 10th December, up until today the weather has been superb. It has changed today though, we have an overcast sky and it is blowing a hoolie. Forecast for the coming week is for sunshine with clouds and it will remain very windy which will keep the temperature down. Still a lot better than the weather back in the UK though.

    We've been in Zahora since early November and had fabulous weather up to now.

    Today is cloudy and very very windy ( ask JAWS!!!:Eeek:).

    Sun is out at the moment though between the clouds :Smile:

    Temp in the shade is 13º - much warmer in the sun.

    Not complaining though - we ain't got snow and minus temps!:thumb::thumb:

    We have just had a downpour of rain for the last 30 minutes or so here inBenidorm. Bearing in mind that this is the first rain we have had since December 10th, we can't complain. Sky is now brightening and the sun is trying to break through the cloud.

    Brisey.

    Lucky we only had a drizzle, It would have been a bit slippery on the BULL run later up the old town.:Rofl1:

    Make sure you have good grip on your soles Geof, don't want to see you trampled. :Laughing: Bob.

    As has been previously said, we have had some great weather here recently, in the Costa Del Sol, until last night and today that is.:Smile:

    Heavy rain at times and very windy at the moment but it will pass.:BigGrin:


    No ice and snow as yet.:RollEyes:

    Looking at the web cams along the south coast from Sargres Portugal to Barcelona the weather is all the same, very unsettled.

    The forecast is set to improve by the end of the month, so February should be better Brian, but don't blame me if it's not. :Rofl1:

    The forecast for S W Portugal is bad for thye weekend with winds up to 108km/h
