It should be mainly sunny in most places with the north experiencing cloudy spells on some days. It will be another hot week with temperatures in the upper 20s for most of the week. However, a weather alert has already been issued for Tuesday and Wednesday when shade temperatures in the east, south and west are expected to reach 34C. The north escapes the alert as shade temperatures should peak at 31C. Moist cloud would be welcome for some of this week at least as this is the time thousands of Canarios make their way across the island on foot to honour the Virgen de Candelaria. Subsequently the risk of forest fires increases. Every year at this time we desperately hope none of the pilgrims get careless with cigarettes etc.
