Gran Canaria Weather Aviso For Rain & Waves

Weather warning from north Gran Canaria on Sunday & Monday Weather warning from north Gran Canaria on Sunday & Monday AEMET

After three weeks of constant sunshine and summer temperatures, Gran Canaria is set for a quick blast of winter today and tomorrow. Then it's back to the sunshine.

A cold, wet front is heading towards the Canary Islands from the north-west and is due to hit Gran Canaria this afternoon. The Spanish AEMET weather service has put out an aviso (what's that?) from rain up to 15mm of rain per hour in north Gran Canaria. That might not sound like a lot by northern European standards, but it's enough to cause localised flooding on a steep island made of impermeable lava.

South Gran Canaria and the resorts can expect Sunday afternoon and Monday to be cloudy and breezy with some showers. 

By Tuesday, the front will have passed over the islands and the sunshine should be back although the temperature will be cooler than in recent days.
