The Canary Islands experienced a drop in temperatures during the early hours of last night, and this decrease is expected to be particularly noticeable on north-facing slopes, as indicated by the forecast from the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet). Aemet does not rule out the possibility of generally weak and occasional showers occurring in the northern regions of the islands with greater relief, accompanied by increasingly overcast skies throughout the day.
In terms of wind patterns, Aemet anticipates a light northerly wind, with coastal areas experiencing gentle breezes and a light westerly wind prevailing in the mountainous regions.
Regarding sea conditions, the wind is forecasted to blow variably with force 1 to 3 in general, occasionally reaching force 4 or 5 in specific areas of the archipelago. Sea conditions will be rough or swelly, with significant swells expected in large portions of the northwestern islands and Gran Canaria. Additionally, there will be a northward swell ranging from 1 to 2 meters in height.
