This weekend will be sunny in south Gran Canaria with day temperatures in the high 20s.

The weather over the Easter week in Gran Canaria will be a mixture of everything, although south Gran Canaria will be sunny most of the time.

Gran Canaria is back to its standard sunny March weather although it is still humid as the wind is still coming from the south and southwest.

Spain and most of Europe are about to go Baltic due to a vast blob of freezing Polar air and this will push rain and cool air south towards Gran Canaria. It will affect the north and the highlands much more than the south and the resorts. 

If you're in Gran Canaria on holiday we wish we could tell you that the weather is going to go back to perpetual blue skies and sunshine. But we can't!

A cold snap heading towards the eastern Canary Islands from the north is expected to bring rain and thunderstorm to Gran Canaria and snow to the very top of the island.

South and central Gran Canaria is on yellow alert for wind and waves from 15.00 today Friday, January 26 until at least midday on Sunday. The alert for wind and waves is also active for north Gran Canaria on Saturday.

 

East winds bring high temperatures and maybe a spot of calima dust to Gran Canaria this week. 

Rumours that Güi Güi beach is on sale in China are true, but the whole exercise is probably just an attempt to get the Gran Canaria authorities to buy it.
