Fuerteventura Weather September Averages, Canary Islands
What's the weather like in Fuerteventura in September
Sunshine Hours and Rainfall
The last month of the tourist season, September in Fuerteventura boasts warm sea temperatures and inviting weather conditions. The sun is expected to shine for 11 hours on average each day and there are barely any clouds over the island during this month. Rainfall is expected for only one day of the month, and this rainfall barely amounts to 2mm of total precipitation for the month of September, compared to only 0 in August.
Temperatures in September are comparable to June and July, with daytime averages floating around 24 degrees Celsius and sea temperatures at a welcoming 26. There is little fluctuation in temperature and the island's weather holds no surprises during September, with daytime high peaks at 27 degrees and low peaks staying at around 20.
There haven't been any hailstorms in the island of Fuerteventura for almost two decades, but back in September of 1996 (and before that in 1992) the island experienced a severe hailstorm. Historical weather data marks this otherwise perfect month as the most potential candidate for another subtropical hailstorm in the future.
These hailstorms are caused by cold winds that blow in from the northeast. Much more common than these cold winds are the warm winds that come from Africa. The island of Fuerteventura is known for being the windiest of the Canaries, a factor that keeps it relatively cooler than most other islands nearby, like Lanzarote.
