Shrove Tuesday blue skies & strong seas

Blue skies predominate on Tuesday throughout the Canaries, with temperatures around 17˚-21˚C in the shade and northeast winds bringing some strong gusts to northwestern and southeastern slopes.

At sea,northeasterly force 4 or 5, occasionally 6 to the southeast. Locally strong swells are expected to the northwest and southeast. On the west coast, variable force 3. Waves from 1 to 2 meters high may well increase to 2 to 3m by the end of the day.

The Canary Islands have been issued a yellow advisory (risk) due to expected adverse coastal conditions, reported by Spanish State Meteorological Agency (AEMET).

The advisory primarily affects the west and east of the islands of La Palma, El Hierro, and the north of Tenerife and Lanzarote. The advisory is active from 6pm and continues until midnight.

The yellow advisory does not, at the moment,affect the other islands, according to AEMET.

The north and northeast of Gran Canaria are expected to start the day with cloudy skies, tending to cloudy intervals in the afternoon, with a low probability of some weak rain dispersed in the early hours; elsewhere a little cloud with some intervals of high cloud.

Northeast winds of 25 to 35 km/h, with strong intervals expected on southeast and northwest slopes; on the southwest coast, loose variable breezes generally; in the mountains, loose winds with a southerly component.

The rest of the week expected to remain pretty similar, with a small chance of a little rain this weekend, but nothing serious.
