Calima in Madrid, snow in the Canaries, Storm Celia affects all of Spain’s weather!
Storm Celia hasn’t only caused chaos and destruction to the archipelago, she has completely reversed the weather in Spain. Normally at this time of year the Canary Islands are bathing in sunshine with the odd shower and light breezes, and Madrid is cold, rainy, and sometimes has snow or ice.
However, over the last 48 hours all has changed as winds from the south heading up into Spain from Africa, have crossed the Sahara and have resulted in Madrid having a calima and intense haze that has led to health warnings being issued to anyone with breathing problems or asthma and high dry temperatures.
In the meantime, although the wind has died down in several areas today, the Canary Islands have had strong winds, rain, a drop in temperatures, and sno in Tenerife, Gran Canaria, and La Palma.
The State Meteorological Centre says that normal weather will prevail in the next few days as the storm stops and the winds die down, meaning Madrid will cool down again, and the Canary Islands will warm up and be hot and sunny as usual.
