Temperature increase forecasted for the Canary Islands, reaching today’s second highest in Spain

In Santa Cruz de Tenerife, temperatures could surpass 25ºC as Aemet forecasts a temperature increase in the Canary Islands.

The State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) forecasts a noticeable rise in temperatures for this Wednesday, with the highest expected to reach 27ºC in Murcia. The day will also see a solitary weather warning in A Coruña, Galicia, for coastal phenomena, underscoring the day’s unique weather pattern.

Notably, temperatures are set to rise significantly across the Northern plateau, the Cantabrian coast, and the Pyrenees. Among the hottest areas, Alicante, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and Valencia will experience highs of 25ºC, while Bilbao, Malaga, and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria will not be far behind with peaks of 24ºC.

The passage of a weather front will usher in a shift towards more stable, anticyclonic conditions. The morning will bring widespread low clouds along the Atlantic slope and the Pyrenees, accompanied by light showers in Galicia, the western Central System, and the northern part of the Northern plateau. While these showers may extend to other regions sporadically, the general trend is towards easing conditions and clearer skies.

Elsewhere, the forecast suggests partly cloudy to clear skies, with the exception of the northern half in the afternoon, where cloud cover could lead to occasional showers, particularly in the eastern Pyrenees. The Canary Islands are expected to see cloudy conditions with a chance of isolated, light showers in the more mountainous areas.

Additionally, snowfall is anticipated in the Pyrenees at altitudes between 1,600/2,000 metres, with frost likely in these areas. Morning fog is also a possibility in the Pyrenees, along the Atlantic slope’s mountain regions, and in the Canary Islands, and it may also appear on the Atlantic coast of Andalusia, the southeast, and Mallorca.

Wind patterns will vary, with westerly and southerly breezes predominating, particularly intense in the northwest of the peninsula, and reaching strong levels with very strong gusts in northwest Galicia and west Asturias. The southern third of the country and the Alborán area will see lighter, variable winds, while the Canary Islands can expect moderate trade winds.
