Weather here is close to perfect, and a scientifcal survey even 'proved' this for Las Palmas! Summers last from May to early October when it is generally between 24 °C and 28 °C during the day and nights are between 16 °C and 20 °C on average. Winters last from November to March but temperatures are still around or slightly above 20 °C, nights around 15 °C. This is also the wettest time of year while summers hardly see any rain at all.
Note that in general the south is warmer and drier compared to the north, although differences are not as big compared to Tenerife.
