Significant shift in Canary Islands weather: arrival of a storm front

In the Canary Islands, La Palma, La Gomera, Tenerife, and El Hierro are expected to be the hardest hit by the approaching storm front.

The Canary Islands have been enjoying unseasonably warm weather recently, with October setting record high temperatures and November maintaining summery conditions. The days ahead are expected to continue with pleasant temperatures and mostly clear skies, but a notable shift in weather is forecasted for the region.

Towards the end of this month, the Agencia Estatal de Meteorología (AEMET) predicts the arrival of a storm front in the Canary Islands, expected to make landfall on Friday, 1 December. This system is set to primarily impact La Palma, La Gomera, Tenerife, and El Hierro, with Gran Canaria experiencing it to a lesser extent.

The European weather model (ECMWF) forecasts that this Atlantic-origin front will approach the archipelago in the latter hours of Thursday, 30 November. The western islands are anticipated to bear the brunt of the storm, with minimal rainfall expected for Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. Predictions suggest that this rainy front will weaken and dissipate by Friday itself.
