07/08/2012 Canary Islands (KMC) -  The month of July had the highest recorded average temperature in the Canaries of the last six years. The highs increased by 1.5 degrees Celsius and the Meteorological Agency (AEMET) showed that temperatures reached as high as 43.5 degrees on these islands.


The average high temperatures are a result of the heat wave between the 17th – 20th of July, when temperatures reached as high as 40 degrees on the islands of El Hierro and La Gomera. There was also no respite from the heat in coastal areas either, which recorded daily temperatures higher than normal.


Rainfall has been virtually nonexistent during the summer months with an average of 0.3 millimetres which is defined as normal for the Canary Islands. In the month of July rainfall has never exceeded an average between 0.4mm and 0.6mm. The area with the highest amount of rainfall was the municipality of Agulo in La Gomera with 1.5mm of rain.
