Calima arrives in the Canary Islands for the Carnival

Temperatures in the Canary Islands will experience a moderate increase, with thermometers ranging from a maximum of 26 degrees in Tenerife to a minimum of 15 degrees on the island of El Hierro.

The forecast in the Canary Islands for Tuesday, 23 January, suggests a moderate easterly breeze along the coastlines and a moderate to robust southeasterly wind in the midlands and elevated regions. A yellow alert will be active, indicating a high probability of extremely powerful gusts on the northern slopes. These gusts are deemed less probable on the southwestern slopes, and towards the evening, they could also affect the central peaks.

Gran Canaria is expected to be mostly sunny or clear with sporadic high cloud cover and mist, particularly pronounced on the southern slopes during the latter part of the day. Similarly, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura will experience minimal cloudiness or clear skies, interspersed with high clouds. Calima (haze) is forecasted to become more noticeable as the day progresses, as reported by the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet).
