Weather Overview for Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico, the resort on the southwest coast of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, is not to be confused with the
Summer, from May till October, sees a pleasant average high of 22°C steadily rising through the months to its peak in August and September at 26°C. The average high temperature then begins to subside but stay in the 20s right into autumn. The sea is warm throughout the year, reaching its peak temperature of 23°C a month after the air temperature peaks. From June till August it is very dry and visitors are unlikely to experience any rain at all. The sun beats down for a full ten hours per day on average in July. Temperatures are kept lower than might be expected at this latitude by the sea and the north-easterly trade winds. Night time temperatures hover near 20°C so fun can continue throughout the night. However, some might find this a little uncomfortable when trying to sleep.
Winter, from September till April, sees slightly cooler
temperatures and some rain. The climate on the
Granted Puerto Rico, along with the other Canary Islands, is known for having a fantastic climate that tends to remain warm and sunny throughout the year, but it is stil subject to certain adverse weather conditions that it is important to be aware of before booking a holiday on the island.
Because of the island’s proximity to North Africa, trade winds that blow across the Sahara can affect the island’s weather. In the summer, usually around August, these winds can cause dusty plumes of air to blow into Puerto Rico and cause sudden spikes of temperature that can send temperature gauge readings soaring. Though this hot weather doesn’t usually last for long, cooling when the wind changes direction, finding accommodation with air conditioning will ensure you feel comfortable if you visit during this month.
As well as this, dust storms can also affect the island. These
tend to occur in the late winter/early spring time, usually between February and
March. Though not severe, they can be an inconvenience and cover large areas. Visibility
can be reduced to 200 metres or less, they can irritate the eyes and affect
asthma and other respiratory problems (so ensure you carry medication on you if
you suffer from such a condition) so it best to seek shelter inside if you are
on the island at the time of a dust storm.
Air pollution can be a problem on the Canary Islands in the winter, when there is notably less wind and the trade winds of summer have dropped.
