This isolated high-level depression, according to meteorologists, will hit the islands throughout Friday and Saturday. This will come “with cloudy skies and continued rainfall on the islands.” Over the course of Sunday, the meteorological phenomenon will weaken and move away from the archipelago. However, it could still rain on Sunday on the most mountainous islands.
Temperatures are not expected to change. The wind will blow from the northeast and will also decrease on Sunday. On Friday, the DANA in the Canary Islands will bring cloudy skies, intense wind and rain becoming locally persistent.
Northerly or northeasterly winds are expected at sea. These could reach wind force 4, 5 or 6 with offshore wind in the northwest and southeast and at some points wind force 7. High waves are expected along the coasts, up to two meters from the north.
“Models keep changing”
Meteorologist Juan Jesús González Alemán announced a few days ago the arrival of an extratropical trough that could “get quite rainy this week as it evolves into a High-Level Isolated Depression (DANA)”. On Thursday, he confirmed on Twitter that the models appear to confirm that the DANA is “very likely to eventually come over the Canary Islands” but also indicated that the models are constantly changing.
