0 comments
AEMET have issued a yellow weather warning for high temperatures of 34ºC degrees in Gran Canaria for Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd October.

The warning is from 11:00h Wednesay - 19:00h Thursday and includes most of the island.

Tenerife, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote are also expected to have warmer temperatures today.

UPDATE below images:



The morning has started off hazy, as you can see from these webcam stills from Playa del Ingles and Puerto Rico. As always I will keep you updated.





Wednesday 22nd

It's very hot in south Gran Canaria today. Earlier this afternoon, a temperature clock in El Tablero was showing 42ºC degrees. The air is very warm, a bit like being blasted with a hairdryer. This is caused by suspended sand from the Sahara, the S.A.L Saharan Air Layer, or simply called a 'calima'.

Calimas usually fade out after a few days, after which temperatures will resume the seasonal norm. According to AEMET the heatwave will also be present tomorrow. The best thing to do in this heat is take a cool dip in a swimming pool or a refreshing swim in the sea.
