Meterorología Lanzarote are predicted a first hot spell of the summer next week, which could be accompanied by a calima. You can read about calima here: Lanzarote weather.
They are predicting high temperatures in the low to mid 30’s. We know many of you in Northern Europe have been enjoying those sort of temperatures over the last few weeks, but here are a few things to remember about the heat here:
The UV is much higher in Lanzarote
The UV component in the sunshine here is much higher than in northern Europe, so you will burn significantly faster here. Cream up well, and re-apply often.
For the same reason, invest in decent sun glasses with a UV filter. Cheapies will leave you with sore and red eyes.
It’s much less humid in Lanzarote
It’s actually a more comfortable heat, but you will dehydrate very quickly in the dry air. Drink plenty of water – at least a couple of litres a day, and no, beer doesn’t count!
For those of you with properties here, consider a built in water filter to save you carting 5 litre bottles around all the time: Agua Clara water filters.
Enjoy the lack of pollen!
The pollen count in Lanzarote is super low, as we have almost no grass and very few trees on the island, so those of you suffering hay fever will enjoy the respite.
