Hot and sticky calima conditions reign in Gran Canaria today, especially in the Maspalomas and Playa del Inglés area, but we aren't expecting significant rain.
However, the forecast for tomorrow Thursday 13 is for showers and even heavy rain throughout the day. While most of the rain clouds have veered west and hit Tenerife so far this week, south Gran Canaria can expect a drenching tomorrow along with more hot and humid weather.
Please note that the big wave alert for south Gran Canaria starts at 18.00 today and lasts all day tomorrow. Stay away from rocky coastlines areas and only swim at sheltered beaches until the waves die down.
Surfers feel free to fill your boots; The famous but temperamental Arguineguín break (where surfing started in the Canary Islands in the 1960s) by the cement factory could well be firing tomorrow.
