Weather Forecast for Tenerife 4 to 10 August
Again the weather was mixed on Tenerife. It was certainly hot enough all week but with quite a bit of cloud as well, especially at the start of the week. By most accounts this affected both north and south of the island. The second half of the week saw more typically sunny August weather across most of the island.
Weather Forecast for Tenerife from 11 to 17 August
The forecast is for almost wall to wall sunshine in the south and south west, whilst the north and east will be mainly sunny but with cloudy spells and a chance of rain. We’ve said it many times and will say it many times more, but ‘a chance of rain’ in summer means the lightest of showers… if that. We’re hoping that the forecasters are right with the rain predictions as this is the week that a lot of Canarios take to the hills for their annual pilgrimage to Candelaria. It’s also the week when there are often forest fires (make of that what you will, it’s something that doesn’t tend to get linked… officially) so any rain at all should help reduce the risk. It looks like we’re all going to experience a heatwave next weekend with temperatures jumping into the low 30s, thankfully after the pilgrimage is over.
