Another wet and windy weekend in store

Another wet and windy weekend is in store for some, Aemet says, with wind strength increasing throughout today from the north-northwest. Tonight, gusts of up to 70 Km/h are possible at altitude and in the medianías especially in El Hierro, La Gomera, and the northwest and northeast of Tenerife, and from midday tomorrow there’s a yellow alert in place for the wind that lasts throughout the day and night. What rain seems to be coming is far less of an issue than the wind, it appears. Batten down the hatches again!
