Yesterday, the Three Kings seemed to bring the gift of a day of gorgeous sunshine and warm weather to  Lanzarote, but it won’t last long, and the next few days are likely to be dominated by the arrival of the newly-baptised storm Filomena, which is rolling in from the mid-Atlantic.

Lanzarote has been placed on yellow weather warnings for high winds and rough seas from today until midnight on Friday, with predictions of the worst of the rain and wind to arrive on Friday.

As usual, it’s the western islands that will take the brunt of the storms, however, with orange warnings for rain , winds and rough seas issued for Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro.
