Summer is now almost over. When the very last charter flight takes summer visitors back home on October 29th, we will all feel that Autumn is truly here.
October has so far been warm and sunny but it looks like the rains will arrive on the 23rd. You can find out what the weather is doing in Molyvos by visiting the Molyvos Weather Station.
All of the tourist industry is now winding down (if not already closed) and Lesvos is preparing for winter. You might think that this will mean lots of relaxation and catching up on sleep. There is however just the small matter of picking the olives from more than 11 million olive trees that cover over a quarter of the island! It is very hard, back breaking work that results in world famous, award winning olive oil. Next time you visit Lesvos you must take time to visit the Museum of Industrial Olive-Oil Production in Agia Paraskevi.
So while the winter rains (and snows perhaps) are falling there is something you can do to keep just a little ‘summer’ alive. Read through some of our pages and start to plan where you will visit next year. Lesvos is blessed. There is so much to see, so much to do and so much to experience. Lesvos has already started preparing for your visit.
Make sure you are ready!
Some visitors to Lesvos comment that web sites reporting Lesvos Weather don’t always reflect what is happening in the more popular tourist area of Anaxos, Petra and Molyvos.
Well, now you can see a local report from out weather station just outside Molyvos.
Would you like to see our weather station data on your mobile? No problem at all!
Type http://goo.gl/QUN803 into your smartphone web browser and you will get our ‘specially formatted for Smartphone’ webpage. The picture on the left is a screengrab from an android phone.
If you have your Smartphone handy and have a scanner app then you can scan the QR code at the bottom of the page to take you to the Smartphone webpage.
There are links to show graphs of daily and weekly temperatures, rainfall, barometer and wind speeds.
There is also a UV index reading to try and help you stay safe in the sun.
Our weather station is new and the software is experimental. The numbers will be correct but you might find from time to time that we have stopped updating. We started to collect data on 25 June 2014 so we don’t have much historical data.
We hope that the information on the Lesvos Weather webpage is useful and interesting.
