Canary Islands weather update: keep your umbrellas handy

Temperatures in the Canary Islands are set to gradually increase.

The upcoming weather forecast for Monday, 25 March, presents a mix of cloudy periods and light rain showers across the Canary Islands, with the northern regions expected to experience more frequent rainfall and overcast conditions, as reported by the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet).

Temperature-wise, there will be a noticeable, albeit gentle to moderate, increase, particularly away from the coast. Expect the mercury to hit a high of 24 degrees in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, while Valverde on El Hierro will see a cooler minimum of 14 degrees.

Winds from the northwest are anticipated to be moderate overall but will pick up at times, especially along the western coastline and the central highlands, before shifting to a northerly direction as the day progresses.

Over in Gran Canaria, expect a day of variable cloudiness with occasional light rain showers, particularly dominating the northern and inland areas. Meanwhile, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura will start with similar conditions but should see significant clearing in the afternoon, especially away from the western regions.

Temperatures on these islands will also undergo a slight to moderate increase, more so in the interior regions. In Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, for example, the temperature is expected to fluctuate between a comfortable 22 degrees Celsius at its peak and 17 degrees at its lowest.

Wind patterns in these areas will mimic those in Tenerife, starting moderate from the northwest and strengthening at intervals particularly along the western and northeastern shores, with a shift to northern breezes expected by late afternoon.
