I cant believe it the weather forecast for Corfu when we arrive on Monday dosent look to clever on accuweather and meteo.
When we went beginning of June last year a lot of people who were there at the same time can remember.
Is there anyone living in Corfu that can give me a bit of hope and say the forcast is wrong...
We will still enjoy the holiday but when you work all the year and after the miserable winter I would just love some sun. When we do have some nice weather here most people will be working.
I too saw it on BBC for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as showers. Of course these can pass buy or be very localised and you mauy not be affected at all; but the temperatures look much lower as well. Its a shame for those going out this weekend as it is usual for the rains to have stopped for the summer by now. But odd things are happening; look at the south of France the other day.

Got back from Kefalonia last Thursday, Accuweather said our stay would be overcast for the week, didn't see a cloud for the whole seven days, it was scorchio! Take ALL weather reports with a pinch of salt ...

I fly out Monday too and am quite relived that the forecast is for lower temperatures, even thunder storms as they are spectacular in Corfu.
After having lived in Corfu for 9 years and just returned to the UK, I believe it or not am enjoying pleasant sunny days, no mossies and nice cool evenings.
I wouldnt worry what the forecasts say, as it will still be warm in between the storms (we hope!)
Have a nice holiday. My 10days will be spent with lawyers who hopefully will be sorting out all my problems with land I bought that was illegally marked as buildable!

We fly out on Monday and I too have seen the reports of thunderstorms for next week. Hubby loves the sun but said "not to worry, we will have to do other things". I looked at him very puzzled and then remembered the football. I guess I will just have to enjoy it too, along with daughter and boyfriend (also football mad).

I am fresh back from Corfu as of about half an hour ago, flying in to a temperate Newcastle (15c) some 20c cooler than when we left Corfu!
Had a wonderful week in a villa near Agni Bay. Was chatting to some of the locals in the bay this afternoon who were talking of the forecast storms on Monday but nobody seemed too worried about it. The weather was gorgeous for our week, I am sure you will get more of the same next week!

I to am flying out Monday, I hope these storms dont hang around for to long. Im a real sun worshipper. Last year I flew into Thessonaliki airport in a thunder storm, rain lashing down, hotel flooded. Next day 42c.

Yesterday on weather.com it had thunderstorms forcasted every single day next week. Today is a different story, it seems they can make their mind up!
Today is a lovely warm sunny day.
To be quite honest I'd take it all with a pinch of salt as they never seem to get it right.

We went at the end of June last year and landed in the midst of a thunderstorm. There was a torrential downpour when we arrived at our apartment in Kassiopi and got soaked to the skin but later that afternoon the weather was gorgeous and we had no more rain for the fortnight. We fly out on the 28th and I'm keeping a close eye on the weather forecast. Friends are in Kassi at the moment and say its very hot! As long as I can do loads of relaxing and some sun worshipping it'll be fine!

Unfortunately, with the heat comes the storms...had 2 spectacular ones last August in SGS but we had brilliant weather for the following 2 weeks. Not much consolation for those flying out soon I know....but hey...you are in Corfu and I know where I would rather be even with the storms!!!
As daveyh said in an earlier post you've only got to look at the horrendous conditions in the South of France and Spain to see that our global weather is changing.
I keep repeating myself - nothing new in that then!! - but the days when a "safe" prediction could be made about what to expect in a certain part of the world at a certain time of the year appear to be getting less "safe".
Sorry but that's the way it appears it's going to be from now on!
Ironically here in the UK we are actually benefiting from the huge low pressure over Southern France as it is pushing high pressure up over us.

Could only find the version with the Greek captions though
Hi, in the link you posted, if you change the "gr" in the web address to "en", it will display in english
3:15pm - just enjoyed our third thunderstorm of the day up here in the hills, but looking from my skylight now, it's blue skies and fluffy white clouds.
Storms at this time of year on Corfu tend to be localised and short lived. David1 (above) made a very pertinent observation though - global climates/weather are changing, and what was experienced last year may not be reflected this.
Having watched the news of flooding in Spain, Portugal, France and Italy yesterday, as well as torrential rain on the mainland of Greece, I think we're doing OK in Corfu on the sunshine stakes!
