Sea temperatures around the island

Was browsing Canarias7 today and was reminded that they regularly report the sea at Corralejo as being the warmest in the Canaries.

September/October was always our favourite time to holiday here partly because of the 'warm' sea  Big Grin

Weird. The water always felt warmer between Costa Calma and Morro Jable. Corralejo/El Cotillo a tiny bit cooler or the same as in Caleta/PDR.

Who is to know which actual location they 'test the waters' in? Wink 
Somewhere like Town Beach might easily be a degree or 2 warmer than a more exposed location.

I dive at different sites on different islands where sea temps are not influenced by local sand or rock heating.
Sea temp at 20 metres 19 c everywhere at the moment.
Can drop to 17 c between Lobos and corry in Feb but 16 further west eg el Hierro
PS I am a complete wimp and wear a 7 mm thick wetsuit and sometimes a vest and socks!!
Hope thats of interest'

Hmmm, think there may be an error here in the reported water temp at Corralejo a couple of days ago!  Big Grin

Noticias:

The sea temperature will rise abnormally in the coming days.

Sea temperatures in our environment are getting higher and higher as global warming is accelerating the water cycle.

The State Meteorological Agencies reported today on a warm anomaly in the waters surrounding the Canary Islands for the next few days.

 

At this time the waters of the Canary Islands maintain an average temperature that oscillates between 18 and 20ºC. According to the models exposed by the AEMET, the rise these days will be from 1 to 1.5ºC, in fact, for this Thursday it is estimated that the water between El Hierro and La Gomera is at 22ºC.

 

Although in Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, the temperature is always colder than in the rest of the islands, since we are more fully touched by the cold current that passes through the archipelago, we will also see how the temperatures of the sea rise anomalously.

 

A scientific team from the Institut de Ciències del Mar (ICM-CSIC) in Barcelona has found that global warming is accelerating the water cycle, which could have relevant consequences on the global climate system, according to an article recently published in the journal Scientific Reports.

 

The Mediterranean, worse

 

However, he stressed that the situation in the Mediterranean will be even worse, becoming the warmest sea on the planet compared to normal by the end of next week, as can be seen in the predictions of the European ECMWF model.

 

Meanwhile, the maritime waters surrounding the Peninsula are already warmer than normal and will warm even more, with anomalies that may exceed 3.5 ºC in the surroundings of the Balearic Islands and eastern Cantabrian at the end of next week.

 
Among the causes of this warm episode, argues the AEMET, is the heat of recent weeks and that expected for the coming days, as well as the circulation of wind in low layers, with periods of calm more frequent than usual, which prevent the ascent of cold deep waters and favor surface warming.
