Hot weather heading to Gran Canaria but the wind comes first
12.07.2016: South Gran Canaria is on alert for strong wind and waves until the end of Wednesday. After that, the temperature starts to ratchet up.
The wind will blow all over the island and be at its strongest today. It should fade slightly on Thursday but expect strong gusts until the end of the weekend.
Temperatures will reach 35ºC all over Gran Canaria towards the end of the week. Inland areas of the south could well reach 40ºC. The heat will be around over the weekend and at the beginning of next week.
As the hot air is coming from North Africa it will bring some calima dust starting on Wednesday. However, it's still too soon to know whether the calima will be a strong one.
We'll keep you updated.
