Weather Expression: Panza de burro

I heard a weather expression this weekend I didn’t understand it was “Los alisios siguen trayendo panza de burro” which translates to the trade winds are bringing donkey’s belly!

Panza de burro Lanzarote

This is a Canarian expression which refers to the weather phenomenon that occurs in the north of almost all the Canary Islands during the summer months.
