The front passes with little rainfall in Fuerteventura.

The chances of rain are diluted after the passage of Nelson's tail through the Canary Islands

The early morning was expected to be more copious, but in reality it again avoids the island of Fuerteventura in the form of rain at least.

Rainfall was scarce, benefiting the interior of the island more, but all forecasts pointed to more.

The AEMET states that occasional showers could arrive during this Good Friday, but the chances are lower.

The westerly wind continues to blow strongly and the swell is expected to follow to the north and west of the island of Fuerteventura, be very careful when bathing.
