You can find a daily weather forecast for Lanzarote during the weekdays on our Facebook page LanzaroteInformation.
August didn’t disappoint regarding the level of sunshine and high temperatures. At the end of the first week a yellow alert was issued for 35 degrees which then increased to an orange alert of 38 degrees. The heat wave lasted for a week and then a storm in the Western Sahara created a calima over the island making it hot and hazy for a few days.
