Storm arrives: the haze gives way to storms and snow in the Canary Islands

Despite continuing to go through an episode of haze during the last hours, the Canary Islands will see how, in the coming days, the dust in suspension will give way to storms and a drop in temperatures that will bring precipitation in the form of snow.

The Canary Islands Government, through the General Directorate of Security and Emergencies, has declared a wind alert situation in La Gomera, El Hierro and Tenerife as of 8:00 p.m. this Sunday.

This decision is made taking into account the information provided by the State Meteorological Agency and other available sources, and in application of the Canary Islands Specific Emergency Plan for Risks of Adverse Meteorological Phenomena (PEFMA).

In this way, a southerly wind is expected that could exceed 100 kilometers per hour on the north and west slopes that will mainly affect areas and highlands and the north of these three islands.

The entry of a storm to the Islands from early next Monday puts Tenerife, La Gomera, El Hierro, La Palma and Gran Canaria on a yellow warning for rain.

All this will be accompanied by the strong winds mentioned above. In addition, the drastic drop in temperatures could leave snow in the Teide National Park.
