A total of 23 provinces, practically the northern half of Spain, will be at risk today due to night frosts, which will leave thermometers between -1 and -9 degrees Celsius, according to the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet), which also warns of the risk of strong winds and haze to the two provinces of the Canary Islands.

In the Archipelago, the risk warning has been activated for all the islands due to suspended dust, which will limit visibility to 3,000 meters, and due to strong winds, which will blow with gusts of up to 70 kilometers per hour, except in La Palma.

Yesterday afternoon, the sky had already turned orange in different parts of the Archipelago, affecting an intense haze episode. The dust especially affects Fuerteventura, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria, but it has already been seen in Tenerife as well.

The weather situation is beginning to remind one of the one suffered in the Islands during the 2020 Carnival, when the intensity of the dust forced even one night of the most popular party to be suspended.

Juan Jesús González, AEMET meteorologist, explained through his Twitter account that “in a matter of hours the sky has been flooded with suspended dust in Gran Canaria”. The meteorologist also shared an image in which he showed how the southeast of this island is, where visibility is “reduced to less than a kilometer.”
