week records high last temps

Last week's high temps - records

Five of the highest temperatures recorded in the archipelago occurred last week.

The last heat wave adds five of the ten highest temperatures in the history of the Canary Islands since records are kept

Between August 10 and 14, five of the ten highest temperatures on record were recorded on the islands. The last heat wave will be studied and characterized in the coming days but it is already counted as one of the most intense in the history of the Canary Islands, although not one of the longest.

The maximum temperature of this wave was 46.2 ºC and was reached on Saturday at the Tacorón station, in El Hierro. It is second in the ranking of temperatures recorded to date in the archipelago, only surpassed by the 46.5 ºC that were reached in Agaete in July 2007.

According to the State Meteorological Agency, episodes of extreme heat have increased their frequency in the Islands in the last 20 years. According to Victor Quintero, delegate of the AEMET in Tenerife, "certainwarm episodes are classified as heat waves with the current criteria, that is, since 1975, we have in the Canary Islands a total of 43 episodes classified as heat waves. In the first half of that period, until the year 2000, there were 16 episodes and from 2000 onwards there have been 27 waves."
