A hot and windy week in store

Canary Islands on yellow alert.

Aemet has raised a yellow alert for high winds and rough seas in Tenerife from tomorrow, and meteorologists are forecasting the arrival from Wednesday of a mass of hot air followed closely by a calima. Winds are expected to gust to around 80km/h, and temperatures should reach around 35º, up to 40º in the southern medianías, though it will feel much hotter in direct sunlight. The conditions are expected to last all this week and part of next.

Please be aware of some safety advice always issued by the authorities in this type of weather.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
