According to Aemet, a storm is approaching the Canary Islands archipelago this week, and the first island affected will be La Palma starting from Tuesday. The storm will reach the rest of the islands in the next few hours or possibly on Wednesday.

According to The State Meteorological Agency (Aemet), the Canary Islands will experience rains that can be locally intense, especially in the more mountainous islands, and even possible snow at high altitudes in Tenerife. 

On Tuesday, rainfall is possible especially in the north of La Palma, while in the eastern islands, cloudy skies with intervals of high clouds and probable haze (calima) at height are to be expected. 

Wednesday will be the day with high meteorological instability in the archipelago, with the most chances of rain across the islands with high altitudes. 

Cloudy skies and moderate rainfall are expected on Wednesday mainly on the more mountainous islands, while in the north and east of Tenerife those rains may be more intense compared to the rest of the areas. 

Lanzarote and Fuerteventura will probably still experience the calima for the first half of Wednesday, while the rain is unlikely to reach these islands.

The minimum temperatures will not be affected and the wind will be light to moderate.
