Yesterday up to lunchtime it was mostly sunny, but then within a short time it began to rain moderately and the rain continued for more than two hours. The image below shows people still enjoying the beach when the rain started to come down the valley.
This morning in Valle Gran Rey the skies are blue and the sun is shining, but a warning for heavy showers is still in place.
Yesterday's rain was moderate here, but other areas had heavy rain and the mountain village of Chipude on La Gomera recorded 30,4 mm. Some areas of Gran Canaria got even more again with Cuevas del Pinar accumulating 55mm yesterday.
The outlook is for the weather to improve, with just the occasional scattered shower expected next week - see top of sidebar for up-to-date details
