The weather forecast in the Canary Islands: high tempretures and a probability of light rains

As forecast by the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), the winds are expected to be light in the Canary Islands but it is recommended to keep an umbrella handy.

The Canary Islands weather forecast for today, Saturday, shows a predominance of intervals of high and low clouds, tending during the afternoon to cloudy in inland areas and with probable rainfall, generally light, on the northern slopes of the islands of greater relief, more likely in La Palma and without ruling out the possibility of rainfall in other areas.

In the afternoon, there will be a probability of weak rainfall in inland areas of the mountainous islands, more likely in the southeast of Tenerife, with little probability and locally could be in the form of moderate showers, as reported by the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET).

In Spain as a whole, storms will put Huesca, Zaragoza and Lérida at risk this Saturday, although they will be mostly of low intensity, and temperatures will fall across the board in Spain as a whole, although they will remain above normal values.

In these three provinces, the yellow warning (risk) has been activated due to the possibility of locally heavy showers that may be accompanied by small hail and strong gusts of wind.

In addition, the highlight of this Saturday will be the likelihood of persistent rainfall in western Galicia and will be strong in the Pyrenees area.

The front that has arrived this Friday will finish crossing from west to east the centre and east of the peninsula during Saturday and will leave cloudy or overcast skies and rainfall that could be heavy and with some thunderstorms in the Pyrenees area.

During the second half of Saturday, rainfall and showers will tend to diminish and cloudiness will decrease considerably. Precipitation is unlikely to reach the Mediterranean area, where only cloudy intervals are expected.

In Galicia, skies will be cloudy with precipitation throughout the day, more abundant in the west, where it could be persistent. In the rest of the western half of the peninsula, there will be cloudy intervals, with some light rainfall more likely in the Cantabrian Sea.

For the Canary Islands, the AEMET forecasts cloudy intervals, with precipitation in the islands of greater relief.

As for temperatures, maximum temperatures will fall in the interior of the peninsula, notably in the area around the Pyrenees and the middle and upper Ebro. In the rest of the country, in general, there will be little change, and some light frost may be recorded in the Huesca Pyrenees and in high points of the Cantabrian Mountains.

Winds will not blow strongly: they will be westerly on the Atlantic and Cantabrian slopes, and also in the south of the Mediterranean coast. Winds will blow from the south or southeast, turning north or northwest in the northeast of the peninsula and the Balearic Islands. In the Canary Islands, light variable or northerly, tending to establish a light trade wind.
