Lanzarote leaves an atypical end of March with temperatures that exceed 34 degrees. According to data from the State Meteorological Agency and the Canary Weather website, Tías and San Bartolomé have registered the highest temperatures on the island, with 34.8 and 34.1 degrees, respectively.
In particular, the town of El Islote in San Bartolomé and Puerto del Carmen in Tías have been the most affected by the rise in the thermometer in the records taken.
As confirmed by the State Meteorological Agency, the inland areas of the southern half of the island have been more exposed to the risk of high temperatures. While, the north of the island has remained below 30 degrees. Likewise, the wind has reached 70 kilometers per hour.
Very close to 34 degrees is Playa Blanca (Yaiza), with 33. While spaces further north such as Guatiza (Teguise) moved away from these measurements and remained at 24.6.
Exceeding 30 degrees in the month of March is an infrequent situation for the island's meteorological records. According to the data published by the Lanzarote Data Center , between 1950 and 2008 the highest average temperature recorded during the month of March was 21.3 degrees, in 1998.
This Friday, Aemet maintains the yellow warning for wind gusts of up to 70 kilometers per hour.
Despite the heat episode suffered by the island, it is not the most affected in the Archipelago. Tenerife and Gran Canaria have the worst heat. Las Galletas, a town in the municipality of Arona, in the south of Tenerife registered 38.5 degrees. This temperature is the highest recorded during a month of March in the history of the Canary Islands. Next to this municipality, La Aldea de San Nicolás, in Las Palmas, reached 37 degrees.
