Weather Pre-alert

A pre-alert means don’t panic yet, but check before you go out.

High winds are expected tomorrow (Thursday) in the eastern Canaries: Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, and Fuertaventura, and the day after (Friday) in all the islands. They expect gusts up to 75 km/h / 46 mph. That’s Force 8 on the Beaufort Scale: “Twigs broken from trees. Cars veer on road.”

So Friday might not be the best day for ridge walks or a boat trip.
