Good morning from a bright but cloudy Roda. We have almost total cloud cover, but the sun is making a valiant effort to break through. There is very little in the way of wind. The haziness is not too bad, with Albania quite visible and the Corfu hills fairly clear. Yesterday started off well, but clouded over to give a couple of brief showers in the afternoon, then it all cleared and we had a lovely warm evening. The temperature at 1.50am was a balmy 22oC!

Good morning from a sunny Roda. We have blue skies with some high cloud together with a few white fluffy ones, there is a slight breeze and the haziness for the Corfu hills is not bad, but Albania is just a vague outline. Yesterday was a mixed day, we had a cloudy start and the sun burnt through that to give a lovely morning and early afternoon. The cloud then built up and we could feel that rain was due. In fact it rained in Sidari and up in the Corfu hills, and Theo from Theodorus told us that when he left Corfu Town there had been a heavy downpour with strong winds. Any way the rain avoid us and we had our usual lovely balmy evening with a nice sunset, it was 23oC at 11.30pm.

Yesterday started off well, but it got cloudier during the late afternoon and early evening, still giving us good hot sunny spells though. However by 9pm we had a thunder storm to the south of us, they don't usually happen there. So as we ate our dinner on the balcony we watched the lightening and heard the thunder rolling around the hills. We got no rain though, just the effects. It was nearly 24oC at 10.30pm.

At 6.30pm it was still 27oC in the shade but a hefty 37oC in full sun. At 10.40pm it was still 25oC so we had a hot and sticky night.

Good morning from a windy Roda. We have blue skies, quite a lot of cloud and the usual hint of Albania across the sea. There are low grey clouds over the Corfu hills behind us. Yesterday started off nice, but the clouds built up in the afternoon. For a short while the breeze died down, but then, around late afternoon, we started to get low rumbles of far off thunder, the wind suddenly sprang up and we had some heavy drops of rain. The shower didn't last very long, then the skies cleared to give us a cooler, breezy evening. At 11.30pm it was 22oC as opposed to 27oC the previous night.

Our weather girl is heading back to the UK today to see if the temperatures in England, Wales and Scotland really are so low! For the next couple of weeks it’s down to me. It’s a bright, but slightly cooler start to the day with just a couple of clouds bubbling up over the Albanian mainland. Yesterday was quite humid but a good breeze picked up and kept things under control, blowing any humidity further south. It was 23°C at 10:30pm .. much the same as the night before.
The readings for today 19th June, at 10.00am are:- Temperature 23.4°C and humidity 66%.
Yesterday's maximum temperature was lower at 23.9°C and the minimum 21.1°C, the maximum humidity was 75% and the minimum 62%.
The reported UV for today is 8 (Range 1- 11) This is ‘High’, bordering on ‘Very High’ so you are recommended to wear SPF 30+ sunscreen, a shirt, sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat. Do not stay in the sun for too long and remember the UV range for UK is 1- 7.
Today has started as the perfect day, with just a light breeze on the coast, temperatures in the low twenties, and Albania little more than a smudge on an artist’s canvas. Yesterday was warm and comfortable - no extremes of anything and all in all, a chilling-out sort of day. Even the sunset was uninterrupted by any amount of cloud, causing the sky to move peacefully from blue to yellow to orange to pink - very relaxing!
The readings for today, Saturday 20th June, at 9.00am are:- Temperature 22.3°C with humidity 71% and rising.
Yesterday's maximum temperature was lower at 24.2°C and the minimum overnight was 19.4°C, the maximum humidity was 75% and the minimum 54%.
With the very light north-easterly winds and high humidity, it should be a glorious day in Roda today, feeling a little warmer than is forecast, but the UV is still high at 8, a product of the time of year and atmospheric conditions - please be careful!
