Yesterday highest temperature in Spain, today snow on Teide!

Yesterday (Monday), the Canary Islands recorded the ten highest temperatures in Spain with Adeje, in the south of Tenerife, the hottest at 32.2°C. Just 24 hours later we have overcast skies, weather warnings for wind, and rain, and now the first snow of the winter on the peak of Mt Teide.

Temperatures were notably lower in Tenerife last night compared to previous days, which has caused a light layer of snow on Teide, although no frosts were detected in the Izaña area, but both the cable car and the observatory are closed to the public.

Today, all of the western islands, including Tenerife, and both Fuerteventura and Lanzarote are on a yellow weather warning for strong winds, which came into force at midnight last night with gusts up to 70km/h forecast, mainly affecting high areas and southwest coasts.

However, the precipitation combined with the colder temperatures has left its mark on the highest point in Spain as can be seen on the live webcams, but not from the coast at the moment due to cloud cover.
