The unusually hot weather for this time of the year in the Canary Islands looks like it will come to and end from next week, as weather forecasts indicate that a mass of cold air will reach the archipelago next Tuesday, November 21, leading to a drop in temperatures.
This period of warm weather is known as the "San Martín summer", which in 2023 has been classified by the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) as the "warmest since 1950", with "unusually high" temperatures for this time of year.
These temperatures are expected to last until the weekend, and then give way to a pronounced thermal decrease starting next week, returning to more typical values for November.
Meteorological projections indicate that on Tuesday, November 21, the Canary Islands will experience the arrival of a cold air mass, leading to a decrease in temperatures.
Tasarte (La Aldea) in Gran Canaria registered again the highest temperature over this period, at 34.4°C yesterday, while Adeje in Tenerife followed closely with 34.2°C, 33.4°C in San Sebastián de La Gomera and 33°C registered in Puerto de Mogán.
Regarding minimum temperatures, Teide registered the lowest temperature in the archipelago, with 8.1°C.
Over these next few days, the skies will be clear with a slight haze in the western islands, which will subside at the start of the weekend. Temperatures are expected to decline slightly to moderately, more pronounced in inland areas and on northern slopes with a light to moderate northeast wind.
