The Canary Islands will be mostly today, Saturday, with light rain on western slopes during the morning, leading to slightly cloudy skies the rest of the day, except for intervals of high clouds, according to the forecast of the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet).

In Lanzarote and Fuerteventura there will be cloudy intervals in the morning, more abundant on the western slopes, where occasional light rains are not ruled out that could reach the north-eastern slopes in the early afternoon, and later in the day.

Temperatures will experience a slight rise, more pronounced in the coastal areas in the south. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria will have a minimum of 18 degrees and a maximum of 25, and it will be the same in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Winds will be from the southwest, turning to the west, being more intense inland and in the high areas of the more mountainous islands.
