    John, in august the minimum day temperature is about 30c. and the evening about 20c. no rain whatsoever. if you are going to costa teguise you will experience a breeze which will make it feel slightly cooler, but do not think that you will not get burnt. the breeze will help you get burnt even quicker so sun cream is a must at all times.
    you will enjoy

    Don’t totally agree with what you say Dave
    What you say is very likely to be correct but not guaranteed
    To my disappointment when holidaying in August when I first started visiting Lanzarote I did the first 3 days and the weather was what you would expect but the following 4 were as bad as it gets
    It was like a mist and this felt like drizzle I can assure you no sun tan, then on the last day it was very heavy rain for a few hours
    So as I always say the weather should be great but its not guaranteed

    We have been going to Lanzarote ( Matagorda) for over twelve years in August. We have found that the mornings start generally cloudy, the wind can be quite evident. Come midday the sky is pretty clear and the wind tends to drop. It seems to get hotter throughout the afternoon and feels hottest around 4-6 pm. Temperatures are officially about 28-35 degrees, however the ‘feels like factor’ can have temperatures around 30-40 odd degrees.

    The wind can then pick up in the evening and temperatures sit around the 20 degree mark. However, the humidity that you can get in the UK and Ireland is never an issue and sleeping is not a problem with windows open or air conditioning.

      On a recent post you wrote ‘Note to most, check grammar and spelling!’

      Your opening line contains an error in both grammar and spelling. When you’re perfect, then criticise others.

      I wasn’t going to comment on any of your recent ‘answers’, however couldn’t resist this 🙂

    Totally right Wendy. Spelling mistakes and use of capital letters incorrectly.

    Over to you Mr C. or Mr Smartarse.
