Autumn Heatwave for Gran Canaria 22/10/14

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.

AEMET have issued a storm warning for the Canary Islands this Sunday 19th October. The whole of Gran Canaria is forecast heavy rain, thunder and lightning from 11am Sunday morning.

The island of La Palma is on orange warning as the Atlantic storm sweeps from the west across the rest of the Canaries.

I'll keep you updated, as of Saturday evening in the south of Gran Canaria all is well, the calm before the storm maybe?

See below image for the latest update:




Sunday 19th


10pm Gran Canaria South:

After a short drive to Puerto de Mogan it was clear that we weren't going to get as much rain as Tenerife. Yes we did have a couple of short downpours but nothing like was expected. Early on I ate dinner at Scooter's Pizza Factory (blog post coming soon) and thankfully their canopies were waterproof and not a drop fell on any of the diners as we had a downpour.

At sunset the sky was a marvellous sight, over Amadores and towards Tenerife orange and pink swirled above as the light bounced off of the rain clouds in the distance.



Monday and Tuesday are forecast to be cloudy with a small chance of rain, with things looking better from Wednesday onwards.


3.30pm Gran Canaria south:

In the last 30 minutes, we've had some fine rain, but nothing crazy. The wind has picked up and it's a little cooler. According to twitter it's begun to rain hard in Telde, with some strong gusts of wind.

2pm Gran Canaria south:

Here is a photo taken in Puerto Rico from Eden Apartments, the sky is thick with cloud but still no rain.



1pm Gran Canaria south

Very calm outside, huge grey cloud hovering over us. No sign of any rain yet and no wind. This morning lightning was visible looking over to Tenerife, they have had some terrible floods and are currently on orange warning along with El Hierro and La Gomera.



Gran Canaria is expected to see rain this afternoon. Stay tuned.
