The weather in Gran Canaria is warm and sunny almost all year round, with temperatures ranging from 24 to 28 degrees in the summer to 19 to 21 degrees in the winter. Summers are generally dry everywhere on the island, although the northern half tends to have more cloud cover. In Winter, the difference between the north and south is even more pronounced, with the southern resorts often a few degrees warmer than Las Palmas. November and December are the rainiest months, but the long, warm days mean Gran Canaria's still a great destination for winter sunshine.
