Islands of etarnal spring.

It might seem a contradiction to have this spring like climate in the neighbourhood of the northern coast of Africa.Whilst other regions with the same latitudes as the Sahara or the Arabian Dessert are known for their extremely hot summers and cold winters, the temperature on the archipelago is normally between 16° and 23°C, and the temperature of the water between 18° and 23°C.

The trade winds and a cold stream, called the Canary stream, are responsible for the few variations of temperature. In summertime the warm and dry trade wind from the high of the Azores – deflected by the earth rotation – blows as the northern east trade wind in the direction of the Canary Islands. Before arriving at the coast it takes some humidity and cold from the Canary stream and so reduces the heat. In wintertime the position of the Canary Islands themselves guarantees a mild climate.

As anywhere else in the world it is not possible to always get an exact weather forecast for lanzarote but the Canary Islands are not called the Islands of Eternal Spring for nothing.
The weather is good – with only a few exceptions – during the whole year. Islanders are pleased when there is some rain and wind. Last year there was hardly any rain – to the regret of the winegrowers.
