A wet and possibly stormy Tuesday in many parts of the Canary Islands
According to forecasts from the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) there is going to be a big change in the weather today, Tuesday, with a drop in maximum temperatures, some rain, and the possibility of storms in some areas.
Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are expected to have cloudy intervals throughout the day, whereas in the north of the more mountainous islands, Tenerife, La Palma, and Gran Canaria, it will be overcast especially during the middle of the day.
It will also be cloudy in the west of Tenerife, but in all other areas of the islands, the sky will be mostly clear with some medium and high clouds at the beginning of the day.
AEMET has warned about the possibility of localised rainfall in the eastern province of the Canary Islands (Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, and Fuerteventura) which could get stronger and be more widespread, as well as some isolated thunderstorms during the first half of the day and early this afternoon.
At the same time, light rains are expected in the north of the western islands, and there could be light showers in the west and southwest of Tenerife at some point today too.
