New record for the highest temperature ever registered in March in the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are currently experiencing an episode of extremely high temperatures, with Aemet activating the yellow alert until Friday, on several islands in the archipelago.

On Wednesday, March 29th, the weather station in La Aldea de San Nicolas in Gran Canaria registered a temperature of 37,7ºC, setting a new record for the highest temperatures registered in the Canary Islands archipelago in the month of March. Other areas in the Canaries also had to face abnormally high temperatures, like Maspalomas (Gran Canaria) or Pajara (Fuerteventura), where temperatures were above 35ºC today.

The yellow alert for high temperatures will remain in place on Thursday as well, covering all the islands in the archipelago and it is possible that today's record could be surpassed tomorrow when the calima will worsen as well, with Aemet predicting that visibility will be reduced to only 3,000 m in some places.
