Gran Canaria Weather: Wind And Waves, Maybe Sunshine In The South

Rain,wind and wavs forecast this weekend in Gran Canaria: Some sunshine in the resorts. Rain,wind and wavs forecast this weekend in Gran Canaria: Some sunshine in the resorts. photosgrancanaria.com

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!

The cold snap that has sent waves of rain and even hail across Gran Canaria is now moving away from the island but it will be replaced by strong and damp Trade Winds over the weekend. 

These will mostly affect the north of the island so there is a good chance that the resorts and beaches in the south will see some sunshine over the weekend (head to Puerto Rico and Mogán for the best chance of sunshine). Temperatures will be cool by Gran Canaria standards and there is still the chance of showers. 

The snow in the hills has now melted away so there isn't much point going up the Cumbres unless you like rain and fog. 

From a residents point of view, the rain over the past four days fell everywhere except where it is most needed. This means that the big reservoirs in the southern highlands are still almost empty. 

However, all is not lost because the freezing weather forecast in Spain early next week may well send us more rain (sorry about that if you're a tourist).
