It will cause temperatures to drop by a few degrees (by up to 10ºC in the highlands) and will bring showers and even the odd intense rainstorm to the north of the island. In the south and the resorts, the effect will be much weaker although you can expect some cloud and even a few showers over the weekend.
The sea will be rough all around Gran Canaria on Saturday and even rougher on Sunday with waves up to five metres along the north coast. The whole of Gran Canaria is on yellow alert for wind on Sunday, with the north on Orange alert for heavy seas. Please stay away from the shore as big waves are unpredictable and dangerous.
This episode of real weather will fade away throughout Monday.
