African air mass expected to reach the Canary Islands on Wednesday

The African air mass is set to persist for several days, bringing with it a period of high temperatures.

The Canary Islands are preparing for the arrival of an African air mass that will start affecting the archipelago from Wednesday, August 9. The State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) predicts that it will linger for several days, leading to a gradual increase in temperatures on the Islands.

From Thursday, August 10, some areas of the Canary Islands are expected to experience high temperatures. However, it is still too early for Aemet to confirm if this will lead to a heat wave, as further monitoring and analysis of meteorological data are necessary in the coming days.

Authorities and meteorological services are urging the population to stay informed about weather forecasts and take necessary precautions to deal with the upcoming weather conditions.

Meanwhile, in the rest of Spain, a period of successive thermal increases has begun, leading to a heat wave in around fifteen provinces between Monday, August 7, and Thursday, August 10. Temperatures in these areas are expected to reach up to 44 degrees Celsius.

Provinces at orange risk include Córdoba, Huelva, Jaén, Seville, Ciudad Real, Badajoz, and Cáceres, while those at yellow risk include Ávila, Salamanca, Toledo, Ourense, Madrid, Granada, and Cádiz.

The western Cantabrian, Galician, and Mediterranean coasts will be the least affected areas, where temperatures will remain more moderate.
