We've already had some rain, Monday evening in Vecindario there was an impressive downpour and most of Tuesday has been rainy with sunny intervals in the south.
(See below images for the latest updates - newest updates are at the top)
According to the forecast, the rain is expected to last right up until the weekend. (forecast is from Mogán)
Here's a rainy palm tree pic from Vecindario, I'm also really enjoying fan pics over on Gran Canaria Blog's Facebook Page.
20/11/1417:15hr As expected it rained heavy this afternoon, one minute it was sunny with blue sky trying to break through the storm clouds, the next thing the ground was drenched! I could see the rain coming off the sea in Puerto Rico, drove along the coast 5 minutes to Amadores Beach and it was suddenly torrential!
Snow on La Palma and Tenerife
Well the forecast for snow was right, the first flakes of the season have fallen in Roque de los Muchachos and Parador Nacional del Teide.
At this very moment it's sunny and we could be in for a lovely sunset. Warnings are still in place for Friday.
09:30hr Good morning! Here in the south of Gran Canaria, it's a dark start to the day, with lots of grey cloud coverage and it's just begun to rain. I'm not sure of the temperature but it's hoodie weather for me personally. AEMET have raised the warning to orange for heavy rain today and storms today. The rain is expected to get heavier from around midday. I've yet to hear any thunder or see and lightning but I will keep you posted.
19/11/1421:00hr Here is another video from today, that I shot in Puerto Rico as the water was flowing like crazy down into the sea.
Check out the blog post from Puerto Rico here, it includes more photos from today.
Snow in Gran Canaria?AEMET have kept the weather warning in place for Friday also, with more rain expected and possibly some snow on the peaks at 1900m on Thursday evening/Friday morning. Pico de las Nieves is the highest point of the island at 1949m, so we will see. I won't be headed up into the mountains, for a couple of reasons, it's not safe to be driving with risk of rockfall after such heavy rain, also because if there is a sign it might snow of a weekend, the peaks will be full of people.
15:40hr Well I've had a great morning of 'storm chasing' and taken plenty of videos and photos. Please make sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel to get updates on videos, (they aren't all of the rain, there is a very nice one of Amadores Beach in January) As of right now the rain has stopped but according to weather forecaster Vicky Palma, there is another storm building form to the west of the Canaries.
Maspalomas River:The barranco that runs through Maspalomas is inundated with rushing water coming down from the mountains. Here's a video I made earlier today, photos are on the way too.
09:25hr Now I have a small leak at home, the water is coming down from the roof terrace, under the door so I've put some old towels down. Hopefully it won't get too bad. It also feels like the wind has picked up a little and the rain changed direction.
08:30hr - 09:00hr Very heavy rain in Arguineguin, which started out with the sunrise and then suddenly turned very dark at 09:00hr, I've had to switch the lights on in the office which feels very strange. I haven't heard many people in the street so I'm guessing not many kids went to school today.
05:30hr I heard really heavy rain early on and went to check all my windows, so far no leaks.
18/11/1411:45hr It's calm in the south of Gran Canaria, but as always I will keep you updated as I know more.
