More climate information about Canary Islands

The Canary Islands have a subtropical climate, meaning they are generally warm and sunny all year round. However, there can be considerable variations depending on which island you visit. For example, the islands of Tenerife, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura are generally warmer and drier than other islands, such as Gran Canaria or La Palma.

The average temperature on the Canary Islands ranges from 21-23 degrees Celsius. In the winter months, the average temperature drops to 18 degrees Celsius. However, it is still relatively warm compared to other countries in Europe.

The Canary Islands also have very little rainfall. The island of Fuerteventura is the driest of all the islands, with an average annual rainfall of just 150 mm. By comparison, the wettest island is La Gomera, which has an average annual rainfall of 1,200 mm.

Several factors influence the climate of the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands' climate is influenced by a number of factors, including the Gulf Stream and trade winds. The Gulf Stream is a warm ocean current that flows from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean. This current helps keep the Canary Islands warm in winter and cool in summer. The trade winds are another important factor in the Canary Islands' climate. These winds blow from east to west and help bring clouds and rain to the islands.

Another factor affecting an island's climate is its topography. An island with mountains will have a cooler climate than one that is completely flat. This is because mountains block sunlight and prevent heat from reaching the surface of the island. Lanzarote, for example, has an average temperature of 20 degrees Celsius because it is flat. La Gomera, on the other hand, has an average temperature of 16 degrees Celsius because it is mountainous.
