Yesterday evening :

@nottingham-red We have had rain here in Caleta on and off since early this morning, not heavy but persistent, the temperature Has not gotten above 18C all day, but there is no hail, at least not here, currently the sun is shining, and although there is some cloud they do n to look very threatening, I have heard unconfirmed reports of damage due to flooding on Morro Hable the consensus here is that the west sides of the islands are going to be worst affected, but whether this is the case I do not know at this time, will update in the morning.

Today's forecast from AccuWeather.

There is a YELLOW WARNING for rain and storms all day.

Shade Temperature - Up to 22C at 3pm feeling like 21C
Cloud cover - it says currently 10% but it is way higher than that, getting up to 78% cover at 4 pm
Cloud Ceiling - 9100mts all-day
Rain - from 20% all day with a high 64% chance at midday
UV Factor - high of 8 at midday
Humidity - averaging 64% today

Radio Sintonia:

The DANA leaves heavy rains in Morro Jable.

Morro Jable, in the south of Fuerteventura, received last night, in a period of about two hours, a storm core that left around 24 litres of accumulated rain per square metre. The parameter of the highest rainfall in the Canary Islands so far, of what the Dana is leaving as it passes through the islands.

The damage is material, mainly in the area of the mouth of the Barranco del Ciervo when it reaches the beach. This "is due to the amount of water and because the outlet narrows and they have a very wide channel", as Fran Torres, coordinator of Security and Emergencies of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, told Radio Sintonía this morning.

At the moment, the president of the Cabildo Lola García and several councilors, together with municipal officials, are in the area to assess the damage.

Fran Torres points out that "all the parameters are maintained and we expect the highest rainfall from 11:00 a.m. onwards and throughout the afternoon."
