In Puerto Santiago we had wind for the first time in months, and the temp dipped to 24.  Nice change.

El Hierro, We had 1/4 " last night here in Valverde and it is trying to rain now. Apart from our own abilities to forecast the weather, we use this Norwegian site,

The wind has been picking up in Puerto Santiago all day long.  We have seen the highest waves ever crashing into the rock pools*, the coast and the harbour.  Very few boats were out past noon.  This is certainly the effects of Leslie, which thankfully is not smashing into our islands. 

*the rock pools down from the Balcón and Barceló, where people get washed away and drown

Tomorrow is supposed to be a bit less windy but we shall see!

At any rate the sea is so noisy we can barely hear the band at the Bar Royal which was blasting out accordion music last weekend.  Tonight it's a guy who thinks he can sing.  He might be able to; I can't hear.

My parents walked down to the sea yesterday evening and said the waves were huge!  I heard we might get some rain today but it’s a lovely morning here so far.

We had 1/2 inch of rain last night, it is cloudy and trying to rain today, the rain is much needed here on El Hierro.

We have sunshine here on the Meridian Isle, but expect rain soon 'cos Bosslady is hanging washing out.

After a bit of a thunderstorm earlier this evening it’s absolutely bucketing down here!  Torrential!  If it’s like this in the morning I daren't go out to my physio appointment for fear of slipping on the steps...
