You see a lot of 'fried egg' symbols in long-term Gran Canaria weather forecasts. That's because it's almost impossible to be accurate more than a few days ahead; unless you just assume that it's going to be sunny.
FEBRUARY 21, 2016: With the Gran Canaria highlands still covered in snow, it might seem silly to say that the recent patch of winter weather is over, but the forecast for this week is for sunshine in south Gran Canaria.
The beginning of the week will see a mish-mash of different weather in the Canary Islands although we expect plenty of sunshine in Gran Canaria's resorts (but also cloudy spells and the odd shower). The next few days will be similar.
The Catholic church rather than the local tourist authorities still decides when to open church doors in Gran Canaria. This means that some of the island's prettiest churches, such as the Puerto de las Nieves hermitage, are often closed during the day.
