Gran Canaria Weather: Calima Returns As Hot Weather Goes On

Winter, what's that? Winter, what's that?

With temperatures as high as 29ºC in south Gran Canaria yesterday, winter just hasn't turned up yet in Gran Canaria.

The Canary Islands dodged a bullet last week when Tropical Storm Alex bounced off a high-pressure system over North Africa and missed us completely.

That same system is now set to keep things sunny for the next few days with only a bit of high cloud to interrupt the blue (and maybe a few clouds in the north).

Expect day temperatures in the mid-to-high twenties although cloud-free skies mean that night temperatures will be as low as 15ºC.

It looks like we could get some Sahara dust in the air starting on Monday but it doesn't look like more than a mild calima. 

The only negative is that the south coast could be gusty for the next couple of days.

Alex Says: All this sunshine is wonderful, but people are starting to worry that we won't get any rain at all this winter. That's bad for the island's farmers and means less wine next year.

 Weather forecast from Sunday 17 until Thursday 21 January 2016.

    Gran Canaria's sun is African and in the summer it fries pale northern bodies in minutes. If you want a tan, take it easy for the first couple of days until your skin has a chance to adjust.
