Weather: Gran Canaria expecting higher than average temperatures in the shade, with some Saharan dust in the air

To the north of the island this Sunday, below about 600 meters, some cloudiness tending to clear from noon; elsewhere mainly clear, according to Spanish State Meteorological Agency AEMET.

Inland areas are expected to see increases in temperatures as are the coasts with moderate rises inland, particularly on slopes oriented to the south and west, where it is probable that 34 ºC or higher could be reached locally in the shade.

Some Calima looks set to bring Saharan sands and dust to hang in the air over the next couple of days, with pre-alerts already being issued for the potential of high temperatures.

Northeasterly to moderate northeast winds are expected, more intense on southeast and west facing slopes; inland and highland areas can expect an easterly component, with breezes on southwest coasts.
