WEATHER: Yellow warnings in the north and a heatwave in the south!
This afternoon will see the start of a contrast in the weather across the Canary Islands, with a weather warning in five of the islands, the arrival of a calima in the eastern islands, and temperatures reaching over 30°C in the south of nearly all of them.
AEMET have activated a yellow weather warning for strong winds and adverse sea conditions in the north and southeast of Tenerife, Gran Canaria, La Palma, La Gomera, and El Hierro which comes into effect from midday today (Wednesday), but at the same time, they are forecasting an increase in temperatures in the south of the islands.
An African ridge is bringing a mini-heatwave and a calima to the archipelago and temperatures of 31°C are predicted in south-facing areas of the islands, and across all of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura over the next few days and this weekend.
Haze will be another important factor in the two eastern islands due to another calima that will intensify as the week progresses.
As for the skies, cloud cover will increase on the north-facing coastal areas and inland below 400 metres, whereas the south will be sunny with some cloudy intervals.
