Saint Martin’s summer arrives in the Canary Islands: here’s how it will impact the islands

Temperatures in the Canary Islands during the 'Saint Martin's summer' will surpass 30 degrees Celsius.

The “veranillo de San Martín” is a meteorological phenomenon characterized by a period of unusually warm, tranquil, and sunny weather, typically occurring in late autumn, around the time of Saint Martin’s Day on November 11th. This phenomenon is most commonly observed in various parts of Western Europe, including Spain and Portugal. The Spanish Meteorological Agency (Aemet) has provided details on how and when it will impact the Canary Islands.

During this period, there is a temporary return to summer-like conditions following the onset of cooler autumn weather. Residents of the Canary Islands will begin to experience this transition starting this weekend, with temperatures even exceeding 30 degrees Celsius.
