A front will reach Canary Islands during the second half of the day of this Thursday with precipitation that can be locally strong, according to the prediction of the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET).
The rains have returned to the Archipelago after almost two months of meteorological stability, coinciding with the last section of 2018. In the early hours of this Thursday, day 17, after the announcement made by the Aemet, there have been showers in the capital of Gran Canaria and in other areas of the island. The water also fell early in the morning.
The State Agency has announced likely storms the afternoon of this Thursday in the islands of Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, in which the discharge of precipitations have been foreseen for the hourly section between 19:00 and 23:00 hours.
The long period that has been marked by atmospheric stability not only in the Islands but in the rest of Spain, as a result of the presence of a powerful anticyclone that blocked the storms since before Christmas, comes to an end, according to the same prediction of the State Agency, which has forecast arrival of successive fronts that have begun to affect the Peninsula and that will continue to do so in the coming days in a more active and widespread manner.
In this regard, for this Friday in the Canary Islands it is pointed out that there will be predominance of cloud skies in Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and the north of the islands of greater relief, with a probability of generally weak rainfall, especially in the mid-highlands and during the first half of the day and afternoon. There will also be cloudy intervals in the rest of the zones.
The Saturday there will be clouds in Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and the north of the islands of greater relief, with low probability of scattered weak rains. Cloudy intervals in the rest of the zones. Temperatures with few changes or in slight ascent. Northeast wind, more intense in the midlands and high areas.
