Since early yesterday morning it has been hot in all of the Canary Islands, some more than others, but without doubt nobody could complain they didn’t have the best of weather on their hols. Look at the picture from the Met office we are in for a hot weekend, and although not full blown, there is still a calima around.
Yesterday we popped out just for an hour but it was too hot, the road felt as if it was melting so we decided to put off our shopping for another day and wait until almost dark before taking the girls for their walk.
With the islands still under threat of wildfires due to the heat. The cabildo have banned bbqs, power tools, and agricultural clearance. They ask that people do not go to the forests while the alert is on. If you see fire or smoke then ring 112. Should you want more advice on what you should do if you are close to a fire check THIS LINK for official advice.
In the webcams, you can see very blue skies right across the island but the sea at Puerto, even at the distance from the camera looks a bit choppy.
The following images are from Costa Adeje in the south of the island and Puerto de la Cruz in the north of the island and are taken from the webcam yesterday at 12.00, 3.00 and 5.00. These times are approximate and are at whatever is the nearest before or after the hour.
