As Lanzarote is futher south and closer to the equator than mainland Spain, its curious how the island does not suffer from the extreme heat which is experienced in the penisular during the summer months. The tempreture here is more or less steady all year round. One of the reasons is the trade winds which occur during July and August.
The trade winds are the prevailing pattern of easterly surface winds found in the tropics, within the lower portion of the Earth’s atmosphere, in the lower section of the troposphere near the Earth’s equator. The trade winds blow predominantly from the northeast in the Northern Hemisphere and from the southeast in the Southern Hemisphere, strengthening during the winter and when the Arctic oscillation is in its warm phase.
