The Weather Forecast for 4th to 10th March
The weather panned out more or less as predicted by Spain’s forecasters. The storm made a lot of noise and heavy rain caused damage to some beaches in the south west of Tenerife but it wasn’t as fierce as it could have been.
The storm moved away at the start of the week leaving a white Mount Teide. The north experienced sunny and unseasonably hot weather for much of the week with even the highs of the Anaga Mountains being too warm for anything more than a T-shirt. In the south, the windy weather and cloud stayed around a little longer although the sun came out to warm things up a bit for the Los Cristianos carnival.

It looks like normal service has been resumed this week with sunny, calm weather smiling everywhere across the island. There will be a few clouds about towards the end of the week and an outside chance of rain but nothing to write home about. With strong winds forecast for the summit of Teide on Saturday, it’s not all calm sailing and anyone planning on climbing Mount Teide should keep an eye on the situation.
