The State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) has issued a yellow warning for haze in the Canary Islands, specifically impacting several areas of Tenerife, Gran Canaria, as well as the islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura this upcoming Saturday.
The suspended dust particles are expected to be prevalent in the eastern, southern, and western regions of Tenerife and Gran Canaria, with the possibility of affecting the high-altitude areas and northern regions of the islands as well.
Forecast for Thursday in the Canary Islands
Thursday’s weather forecast doesn’t show significant changes. Temperature variations will be minimal, with maximum temperatures reaching 29ºC in the Santa Cruz de Tenerife province and 27ºC in the Las Palmas province.
The Aemet anticipates cloudy periods with predominantly overcast skies and a low likelihood of scattered and occasional drizzles, especially during the first half of the day, in the northern, more mountainous areas of the islands.
Moderate northeast winds are expected, with intermittent strong gusts on the southeastern and northwestern slopes of the mountainous islands. However, these winds are anticipated to subside in the eastern province by the end of the day.
