The forecast for Monday also includes gusts of wind up to 55km per hour in the south east.

As always during hot weather in Gran Canaria, wear a hat, stay out of the sun as much as possible between midday and 18.00 and drink plenty of water. Don't go walking in the hills during the heat of the day as the hot, dry air dehydrates you within minutes.

Also, please don't smoke or light fires anywhere in rural areas and stay off dirt roads; sparks from car metal hitting stones causes forest fires. Anyone caught having a BBQ in the pine forests will be put in prison (seriously).
