The Canary Islands face high waves warning this Wednesday

Aemet warns: The Canary Islands will not only be at risk this Wednesday due to heat, but also due to high waves, as well as the expected calima.

According to the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), the Canary Islands, particularly the province of Las Palmas and the island of Gran Canaria, will face potential risks this Wednesday due to high waves and high temperatures. A yellow warning has been issued for high waves, while a red warning is in place for high temperatures.

The impact of high temperatures will also be felt in La Palma, La Gomera, Tenerife, and El Hierro, with an orange warning, while Lanzarote and Fuerteventura will experience a yellow warning. Coastal areas in La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro, and Tenerife will also be at risk due to the prevailing weather conditions.

The provinces of the Canary Islands are among the 23 regions in Spain facing risks on Wednesday due to high temperatures.


Temperatures are expected to soar, reaching up to 44ºC. Minimum temperatures will rise in the southeastern parts of the mainland, Alborán, and the Canary Islands. Maximum temperatures will increase in the extreme south of the peninsula, Alborán, and the Canary Islands, but will decrease in other parts of the country. Southern regions of the peninsula, northeastern interior areas, and the archipelagos will experience temperatures surpassing 34-36ºC.

Calimas, which are dusty air masses, are also predicted in the Canary Islands, and there is a possibility of their occurrence in the southeastern third of the mainland and the Balearic Islands. Additionally, morning fog banks may form in high areas of the northern third of the country, along with some coastal fog in Cadiz and Malaga.

The wind patterns for Wednesday include a northerly wind in the northern third of the mainland, with strong intervals in the Empordà region. The wind will be westerly in the central and southern parts of the country, variable in the Balearic Islands, and characterized by trade winds with intermittent strength in the Canary Islands.
