The Canaries to be affected by an unusually cool week

Unseasonably cooler temperatures are expected across Spain, including the Canaries.

The State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) has forecasted that the upcoming week, coinciding with the start of meteorological autumn, will experience below-average temperatures for this time of the year across most of the country, including the Canaries.

While there will be a temporary temperature rise in the initial days, a cooling trend is expected towards the weekend. Additionally, Aemet predicts a week of rain in the far northern regions of the peninsula, while the Canary Islands will experience a partially cloudy sky with occasional cloudy periods, particularly in the northern mountainous areas.


Temperature-wise, minimum temperatures will rise in the inland northwest and extreme southwest of the peninsula, while they will drop in the southeast quadrant, northern Catalonia, and the Canary Islands. Other regions will witness little change.

Maximum temperatures will decrease along the southeast, Alboran, and Canary coasts. Minimal change is projected for the Balearic Islands and the northernmost parts of the country, while an increase is anticipated in other areas.

Expectations indicate that temperatures might reach only 32-34°C in the Guadalquivir region, and minimum temperatures will remain above 24-26°C, primarily along coastal zones in the southeast and the Balearic Islands.

Aemet issues warning of colder week: Canaries to be affected.


Strong winds are also on the forecast, particularly due to the presence of squall Rea in the western Mediterranean. Gusts of wind might be robust or even very strong in regions such as Empordà, Balearic Islands, Pyrenees, and the lower Ebro area. Consequently, orange warnings (indicating significant risk) have been issued for wind in Castellón and Tarragona, with yellow warnings in Girona, Lérida, Huesca, Teruel, and Zaragoza.

Additionally, strong intervals of wind can be expected in the eastern Cantabrian Sea, with varying conditions in the Strait of Gibraltar and Alboran. The Canary Islands will experience trade winds with intermittent strong and very strong gusts. For this reason, orange warnings for swell have been activated in Menorca, Girona, and Tarragona, while yellow warnings are in effect in Castellón.
