This is the forecast of the Aemet on the effects on the Islands

The State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) is closely monitoring the formation of a possible tropical cyclone south of the Canary Islandsas has been advanced by the United States National Hurricane Center, an entity in charge of monitoring and predicting the formation of this type of phenomenon in the Atlantic.

“After a summer with very little cyclone activity, the Atlantic has ‘woke up’ in September. There is quite a bit of activity right now, with a tropical storm, a hurricane, and three developing systems. Of those three, we are especially interested in one ”, they started his explanation.

The National Hurricane Center, explains the Aemet, has set its sights on a tropical wave that, from the interior of Africa, is advancing towards the vicinity of Cape Verde. “When it comes out into the Atlantic, it will probably move north and find favorable conditions for its intensification. Therefore, it has been assigned a 50% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone within the next five days,” they shared.

They also point out that if this tropical cyclone ends up forming in the next few days, the US center will offer its most likely “track cone”. “Right now there is a lot of uncertainty. It remains to be seen how it will affect the Canary Islands. The probability that the most intense winds affect the archipelago is very low for now,” they concluded.

It is likely that there will be intense gusts in summits and, above all, that there will be rains in many parts of the archipelago starting on Saturday, weak to moderate that day, and that could increase in intensity the following day. “We will continue to report,” they promised.
