Incoming Calima raises temperatures on Gran Canaria

Incoming Calima raises temperatures on Gran Canaria

The Spanish State Meteorological Agency has warned that Wednesday will see hot desert winds blowing Saharan Dust, known locally as Calima, over the islands and likely to raise temperatures across Gran Canaria.

The report predicts some cloudy skies to the north of the easternmost islands in the archipelago, clearing in the afternoon, and a trend toward clear skies, if a little reduced in visibility due to particulate dust suspended in the air.

The winds will blow from the northeast with strong intervals, gusts of up to 90km/h could be possible in places.

At sea northeast winds of force 5 to 6 in general are expected, which may reach force 7 in places, and there will be strong swell with some areas of rough sea and waves of up to 1 meter.
