Along the coast of the Atlantic passes the cold canary flow, which contributes to a decrease in the summer air temperatures. Concept «Cold current», Of course, conditional, since the average temperatures of the surface horizons of water in the summer usually exceed 20 °C, and in winter make up at least 16–17 °C.
