The weak front that passed over Gran Canaria over the last couple of days has now gone and the last clouds will fade during today.
With hardly any wind, most of Gran Canaria will be sunny over the weekend although we may get some afternoon clouds over the highlands that could spread to the south coast in the afternoons. There may even be the odd shower at cocktail o'clock.
The north of Gran Canaria will get cloudy patches but should be largely sunny.
The North Shore will be getting huge waves tomorrow thanks to a big swell rolling in from the northwest. They will be at their biggest first thing in the morning but over two metres (that's four metres in real height) all day long. The south coast, sheltered from the swell by the island, will be flat calm.
So, for beach weather and swimming, the south is the place to be. For surfing (experts only) and wave-watching, you want to be up north.
