1st Day of September 2017
What a beautiful start to the month! We are still enjoying Summer time here in Gran Canaria so temperatures are pretty much the same as August in the low 30’s. This video was taken today at Arguineguin’s Las Marañuelas beach.
Gran Canaria Weather September 29th 2016
A calima blew over the islands last night and today the sky is VERY hazy. The sun is still shining through the dusty sky and the sun is hot with temperatures about 33ºC degrees. It feels like Summer again!
This isn’t due to last long though and the forecasts show that we may even have some rain on the island at the beginning of October!
Gran Canaria Weather September 27th 2016
Wow! Where did the month go? Sunny September has flown by and October is right around the corner. It officially turned Autumn a few days ago but September and most of October are like extensions of the Summer here in Gran Canaria.
Today I took a short walk in Patalavaca, where there were quite a few people on the beach topping up their tan. The waves on Don Paco beach in Patalavaca were calm.
It’s a beautiful day, with blue skies and hot sunshine with highs of 31ºC degrees. The evening’s are much more pleasant now and it’s easier to sleep compared with the uncomfortable Summer nights. I personally have put the duvet back on my bed (it’s a very thin Summer one from IKEA) and don’t need the fan on at night to sleep.
1st Day of September 2016
Happy first of September and the beginning of Autumn here in Gran Canaria. The sky is a beautiful cerulean blue and we will probably see highs of about 30ºC degrees today in the south of the island. Take a look at this webcam still from Amadores Beach in Puerto Rico taken just before 1pm today.
1st Day of September 2015
Welcome to the first day of September 2015 in Gran Canaria! We have beautiful blue skies today accompanied by high humidity and a very welcome breeze. Temperatures are in the low 30s and it’s still Summer here! The sea is pretty choppy today, especially in San Agustin where they had the red flags out on the beach, which means no swimming.
The swimming pool at IFA Beach Hotel looked most tempting! This is an adults only hotel and has wonderful palm trees decorating the pool area. It’s right near the natural dark sand beach of San Agustin.
It was fun to walk along the promenade and feel the cool spray of the sea as it splashed onto the rocks.
Storm Warning for Canaries 6th September 2013
AEMET have issued a yellow weather warning for storms in the ‘Islas Orientales’ namely Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria. The electrical storm is sweeping over from the East and heavy rain has already occurred in Lanzarote and Fuerteventura so far.
The warning is in place until 11pm this evening (6th September). According to Canarias7 there was also rain early this afternoon in Gran Canaria’s capital, Las Palmas.
Despite the warning for rain and storms, the air is still very humid and the sunshine has been out for most of the day in the south of Gran Canaria.
Heavy Rain for Canary Islands 26th September 2012
Already this week we have had a rain warning but, AEMET have put another in place for Thursday 27th September.
The yellow weather warning for heavy rain is for the whole of Gran Canaria and a high winds warning for the mountainous zones of the island with wind speeds up to 70 km/h. As you can see the other islands are also affected.
Tropical Storm Nadine 22nd September 2012
There has been much confusion as to whether Tropical Storm Nadine, which is currently in the Atlantic, will affect the Canary Islands.
She has been circling nearby and spaghetti models showed she would originally pass the Canaries and head north, but AEMET have since put out a weather warning for Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote for heavy rain for Sunday 23rd September and Monday 24th, which includes Tenerife. So far it seems the tail end of the tropical storm will give us some much needed rain and maybe some big waves.
Heatwave Alert for Gran Canaria 7th September 2011
AEMET have issued a yellow weather warning for a heatwave this week beginning Wednesday 7th September. Temperatures are expected to reach up to 35ºC degrees in the shade in Gran Canaria.
The heatwave coincides with the festival of Virgen del Pino and there is a maximum alert for fires in place for Gran Canaria and Tenerife, so it’s important for those walking to Teror to take precautions.
