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.

 

This short Gran Canaria hike takes you through a quiet local village, up a beautiful green valley and ends up at Charco Azul; a deep pool with a waterfall that is perfect for swimming: 

A low pressure system just to the east of the Canary Islands will cause strong winds for the next two days but heavy rain is unlikely.

13.01.2018: There's a cut-off blob of cold air heading south towards the Canary Islands and it could produce serious rain in Gran Canaria and the eastern islands through the middle of next week.

After a cool weekend with showers all over Gran Canaria and some welcome heavy rain up in the highlands, the weather in Gran Canaria will return to normal throughout the week. 

A blast of cold, wet air from the north is due to hit Gran Canaria and the Canary Islands on Three Kings Day (January 6th).
