Cold front

A cold front brought good rainfalls to Valle Gran Rey last night and further showers can be expected today. The polar air that came with it makes it feel pretty cold today and the minimum temperature on my thermometer last night read only 10,5ºC, making it the coldest night during my time here. By now (10am) the temperature is back up to 15ºC, but this still is colder than usual. The low pressure of about 1007hPa that has formed over the Canaries will remain stationary for today, but is expected to fill and move away in 48 hours and the normal, warmer weather with more sunshine will have become established again.
Hiking and walking in the mountains is inadvisable as for the rest of the day there are weather warnings of heavy showers and thunderstorms.
