What's the weather like where you are?

We're on the Costa De La Luz and experiencing un-seasonal weather!:Eeek:

Temperature is 9deg at 11.30am, heavy cloud threatening rain. :Sad:

Over the last two weeks we've had heavy rain, strong winds, low temperatures and only a few days of sun! Even when the sun comes out the air is cold.:cry::cry:

Still - mustn't grumble - could be worse - we could be in UK!!:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Anyone having better weather on the Iberian Peninsula??

Quite right Pen, it could be worse, in fact it is..........I am in the UK at the moment and counting the hours 'til I get on that flight back to Spain.........FREEZING and west here [UK] and running out of cash at a crazy rate............and the feeling of doom, gloom and depression hangs :cry:

29Km inland from Marbella we have had a cold snap [I think that would be called a heatwave in the UK] over the last few weeks, but nothing a jacket over the Tshirt didn't sort, plus a bit of rain...........Night were a bit cold though. I have just spoken to Debbie and she says it is a touch overcast.......I take to notice of her "Cold" comment......she would freeze in hell ::bigsmile:

So, slip round the coast and join us here [Alhaurin] if you have time........

You could cross to Morocco........One of our groups have just come back and report nearly every day of the 22 day tour experiencing fine weather and very warm in the south with they were there..........Quite a few MHFunsters joining me in Morocco during Jan/Feb/April, so lets hope it holds [It wll :thumb:].........

I am on the Aires at Alfaz del pi right next door to Benidorm. Very sunny in the 60's All though it does get cold at night, the wind has just started to blow so the weather could be changing. We have been in Spain for just over the month and only had two days of rain. Who would want to be in the UK now?

Weather in Portugal...

The Eastern Algarve, apart from a couple of damp days, was brilliant up to Dec 4 when I left for central Portugal. Here it has been quite cold at night but mostly sunny during the day until today when it is a "stay in van" day and surf the post on Motorhomefun.co.uk

The aire at Alfaz de Pi

RickB here is a link to the aire. It is owned by a Belgian couple Patrick & Vikki. You can go into Benidorm by bus or train from the local small station very cheaply:Smile:

Where in the Costa De La Luz are you? I'm heading for El Peurto De Santa Maria between Cadiz and Jerez De La Frontera on Monday all being well. Currently in Benidorm warmish during the day but cold at night. Don't want to go anywhere colder if I can help it.

We're in Conil De La Fontera at the moment but heading 7kms east tomorrow to a new campsite called Pinar San Jose - not far from Trafalgar.
Just been in El Puerto De Santa Maria this afternoon - we stayed there for a month in January this year - good place for exploring using public transport - ferry to Cadiz - train to Cadiz, Jerez and Seville.

It's warmish here but we've had a lot of rain over the last couple of days. Brighter today though!

Well, Camping Pinar San Jose now has 3 funster incumbants!

The road around the camp is "interesting" (MIND THAT TREE) and the pitches are, shall we say, a little soft. Soft enough for both RayV8 and myself to sink down to our rear wheel rims. Ho hum. (BRUCE - take note!) We even had to swap jack pads as there was so little room left under Ray's van that his normal 1" pads were too thick!

We shall wait and see what having 40 Spanish tuggers around us for 4 days does to our nerves. Already, al-fresco guitar playing and jollilty has broken out - :ROFLMAO:

Oh dear, Papa Smurf!

Hope you & Ray managed to jack yourselves out of trouble. Mind you, if you will drive these mighty Yank beasts :roflmto:

Suggest you dig out your Flamanco dress and gyrate to the tugger tunes whilst passing the hat round. That should dampen their revelry!

Remember - we're relying on you pathfinders to get it all sorted for us by the time we get there next week. . .

On the plus side, I gather the wifi works!
