Heatwave and Forest Fire Warnings June 2017
As we head on into the hottest months of the year, it’s no surprise that the Canarian Government have issued a forest fire warning. Temperatures are set to reach 40ºC degrees in parts of Gran Canaria over the weekend from Thursday 22nd – Saturday 24th June.
AEMET have issued a yellow weather warning and the UV index is extremely high at 13, which means unprotected skin can burn in minutes.
Gran Canaria Summer 2017
We’ve had a few cloudy starts to the days which later cleared for very hot and sunny weather with the UV index at extremely high. It’s so important now to take care and skin burns very quickly. That means the official start of Summer is just days away when we will celebrate San Juan with beach parties and bonfires all over the island.
Here is a recent video from Anfi del Mar, it was a stunning June day and perfect for swimming. Daytime temperatures are about 30ºC degrees when the sun is in full force and humidity is very high too.
Sunny start to June 2017
I can’t believe it’s June already! Summer is just around the corner and Gran Canaria got the memo early. Skies have been very sunny and blue for the last week, temperatures in the high 20’s low 30’s at some points.
As we do head into Summer, it’s important to stay hydrated and wear sun protection, especially if you are going on any walks. The heat is much more intense than Spring months with a high UV index of 11. This means burning can happen a lot quicker, take it from me!
The week ahead is looking good. Average temperatures in the south of Gran Canaria will be around 29ºC degrees. We may have some light cloud as in the mix but overall sunny skies.
Today we were at Puerto de Mogán where the beach and harbour were buzzing with people enjoying the sunshine! We also spent some time at the impressive Radisson Blu Mogan. We will definitely be letting you know more about it in an upcoming article!
Gran Canaria Weather June 30th 2016
Here we are at the end of the month, July right around the corner, with the very last sunset of June taken this evening in Las Meloneras. The resort was very busy with people walking along the promenade, others watching EURO 2016 football on the large screens, taking photos of the sunset and purchasing souvenirs at Fund Grube.
Gran Canaria Weather June 22nd 2016
Hope you haven’t missed the Gran Canaria weather updates too much. I’ve been away from the island over on Fuerteventura having a little holiday. It’s fantastic there, but of course Gran Canaria is better. 😉
Onto the weather! It’s officially Summer, so it was a no-brainer that the temperatures were going to rise. AEMET have placed a yellow weather warning for high temps of 34ºC degrees this week, so far for Thursday and Friday. The heatwave, which is accompanied by a calima has arrived this evening, making the sky very hazy.
Take care, especially between 11am and early evening as the heat will be intense. I’ve personally taken to having very lazy siestas this week to beat the heat. 🙂
Gran Canaria Weather June 11th 2016
June has been hot hot hot so far! Blue skies and sunshine, what more could you want? Temperatures in the south of Gran Canaria are about 30ºC degrees on average and the UV index is high at 11. It’s SPF 50 season for me!
Yesterday we parked up in Patalavaca and walked down along the promenade past the beaches. Builders were repairing the part of the promenade that collapsed quite a while ago.
It was too hot to walk all the way to Anfi del Mar, so we decided to walk to Playa Aquamarina and along the jetty towards the helipad. This is where we filmed the live Facebook video from.
Gran Canaria Weather June 1st 2016
Hello June! A new month and fresh start (we have a new design) so hopefully the site will be easier to navigate and discover Gran Canaria. Onto the weather! It’s official, the duvet or funda nordica has been removed from my bed as it’s far too warm to have on at night. It’s still cool enough to survive without air con or a fan but the evenings are warming up as Summer is fast arriving.
Daytime temperatures are on the rise, at peak time yesterday it was 36ºC in Arguineguin! If you like to take walks or do sports, it might be a good idea to do them earlier on in the day or around 8pm when the sun isn’t as intense.
Gran Canaria Weather June 27th 2013
Despite a cooler evening last night, AEMET have issued a yellow (low risk) weather warning for high temperatures of 34ºc degrees in Gran Canaria from today (27th June) lasting until Friday 28th June 19:00h.
It’s normal for temperatures to rise now as we go full steam ahead into Summer and the hottest months of July and August are just around the corner. This heatwave is expected in the south, west and east of the island.
Gran Canaria Weather June 16th 2013
Here we are halfway through June and you can really tell we are in the last few days of Spring as it was very hot in Puerto Rico this afternoon. The bright cloudless sky and the fact that it’s Sunday was a great excuse to check out the beach.
The temperatures in the direct sunshine must be around 32ºc degrees at the hottest point of the day now and I’ve forgotten what clouds look like 😉 A couple of days ago I went cycling in Maspalomas which I put in a separate post – I managed to burn my hand whilst cycling. So that’s a warning, even a Gran Canaria veteran like myself can burn in this June sunshine.
Summer is certainly just around the corner!
Gran Canaria Weather June 22nd 2012
It’s officially Summer and it wouldn’t be Summer in the Canary Islands without a heatwave.
We’ve been talking about a possible increase in temperatures this week and AEMET have issued a yellow weather warning for the South, East and West of Gran Canaria for maximum temperatures of 34ºc degrees. (Sunday 24th June from 11am-6pm)
When we experience these heatwaves they usually come with very humid air from the Sahara (Calima) and suspended dust.
Gran Canaria Weather June 10th 2012
AEMET have issued yellow weather warnings for all of the Canaries this Monday 11th/12th June. Gran Canaria in particular is to expect high wind gusts of 85 km/h in the middle of the island including the mountains, while the east, west and south coasts of Gran Canaria are in for some big waves.
The weather in general is sunshine and temperatures of around 30ºc degrees in the south. Last week there were some showers in Las Palmas and villages in the mountainous zones.
Gran Canaria Weather June 30th 2011
AEMET have issued yet another yellow weather warning this month for high temperatures of 34ºc degrees on Gran Canaria. The heatwave warning runs from Friday 1st July at 10am until Saturday at 6pm with a calima.
Gran Canaria Weather June 20th 2011
AEMET have upgraded the previously issued weather alert from yellow to orange, for high temperatures.
The prediction is that the eastern Canary Islands including Gran Canaria are to expect temperatures of 37ºc degrees on Tuesday and the heatwave is said to last into Wednesday evening.
Gran Canaria Weather June 19th 2011
AEMET have issued a yellow weather warning as of Monday 20th June for high temperatures of up to 34ºc degrees in Gran Canaria. The warning comes after a heatwave just last week which apparently produced temperatures of 38ºc degrees in some parts of the island.
The temperature is said to return to normal as of Tuesday evening.
