The upcoming weather forecast for Monday, 20 November, suggests varying cloud cover over the Canary Islands. High cloud intervals are expected, with occasional medium clouds appearing later in the day. A light haze at altitude will predominantly affect the southern and eastern slopes. This outlook is provided by the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet).
Temperature-wise, there’s not much change anticipated inland, but coastal areas might see slight to moderate rises, particularly in the higher elevations on the north and west coasts. Here, temperatures could locally soar up to 30ºC. The temperature range is set to vary, with Tenerife experiencing highs around 29ºC, and El Hierro seeing lows of 19ºC.
Wind conditions will be generally light, originating from the east with some moderate periods along the northeast and southwest coasts. In the midlands and higher altitudes, expect moderate southeast winds, intensifying later in the day. The central highlands will likely experience moderate southwest winds by the afternoon.
Over in Gran Canaria, similar conditions are forecasted with intervals of high clouds and light haze at altitude, mainly impacting the southern and eastern slopes.
Lanzarote and Fuerteventura will also see similar weather patterns, with intervals of high clouds and light haze, as reported by Aemet. Coastal areas here too will have little temperature change or slight increases, especially in maximum temperatures on the north and west coasts, which might reach 30ºC. In Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, temperatures are expected to be between a maximum of 27ºC and a minimum of 22ºC.
The wind in these regions will be predominantly light and easterly, with moderate spells on the north and south coasts. In the midlands and peaks, moderate southeast winds are expected, strengthening later in the day.
