Weather Forecast for 10 to 17 January
It turned out to be a blisteringly hot week across Tenerife. When people commented it felt like summer they weren’t exaggerating. The highest January temperatures ever recorded in the Canary Islands were on Tenerife and El Hierro on Friday 15 January. Even at 1000m above sea level it was hot to walk. Fabulous weather for visitors. As for the predicted snow, it was a no show instead of a snow show.
Weather Forecast for Tenerife 18 to 24 January
Is this the week the weather is going to change back to normal January weather? Possibly… and just in time to welcome an army of British travel writers.

Monday should start quite cloudy, but after that it should be a mainly sunny week everywhere with some cloud towards the end of the week. Whilst the weekend should also be sunny across Tenerife, there could be high cloud which might make skies hazy. As far as temperatures go, it should be less hot than in recent weeks with shade temperatures in the low 20sC. Once again some snow is predicted for Teide. Maybe this time it will happen.
