Winter arrived into tropical Canarian Islands, too, with unique winter conditions from the coast up to the highest mountains.
While in mountains, heavy snowstorms surprised tourists and inhabitants of the islands, near sea level temperatures dropped in many places to +10/+12°C, locally under +10°C, with very unfavorable weather conditions such as winds, heavy rains and low windchill temperatures.
In Gran Canaria, minimum temperature reached +11,6°C on 6. February, with maximum temperature of previous day only +18,1°C.
Islands with tropical climate are very dry, with only 3 days with precipitation higher than 1 mm in February in average.
It is very possible, that current Siberian blast later hits subtropical and tropical regions, too, partially, with possible surprises as unseasonally frosts or snow cover in southern regions in northern Africa, Mediterranean or Middle East.
