Weather outlook for the Canary Islands: more rain, rough sea and strong wind

The Canary Islands are on weather alert for strong winds and coastal events, with rain expected in the north and cooler temperatures.

The State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) has issued advisories for the northern shores and the Canary Islands due to potential wind or coastal disturbances this Tuesday. While the northern third is set to experience rainfalls, the remainder of Spain anticipates a chilly yet sunny climate. Here’s a detailed outlook for today’s weather across the Canary archipelago:

Weather in the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Today’s forecast suggests overcast skies in the northern parts of the islands, with chances of light and sporadic rain in the morning. The rest of the islands will see intervals of cloudiness.

Temperature levels will mostly stay consistent, though a minor decrease in the maximum temperature is anticipated for Tenerife. The temperature will range from highs of 25 degrees in Tenerife and La Gomera to lows of 19 degrees in La Palma and El Hierro.

A moderate to strong northeast wind is expected, intensifying on the northwest and southeast slopes of the islands. In the peaks of La Palma and around El Paso, very strong wind gusts are predicted in the latter half of the day.
