The east winds are holding steady so we should have sunshine all day, every day for at least the next five days. The only negative is that we could see some calima dust blowing over from North Africa.
Further into the future, this exceptional run of hot, sunny weather has to end one day soon. The long-range forecasts suggest that the Trade Winds will pick up in the new year, bringing clouds back to the north of Gran Canaria.
Expect day temperatures this week around 25ºC, dropping significantly at night as there is no cloud to hold in the heat. Minmum night time temps could go as low as 15ºC at sea level and in the resorts. That's almost cold enough for a blanket.
The sea remains rough over the new year period, especially in the north of Gran Canaria. While the waves on the resort beaches will be smaller, they could still be significant. Please keep to designated swimming areas and take care close to the shore.
