The Weather Forecast for 11th to 17th March
Again the forecasters were relatively close to the mark. The north of the island especially enjoyed hot and sunny weather for most of the week. Walking in the Anaga Mountains, it felt more like summer and Tenerife’s north eastern corner looked at its stunning best. On the other hand, the south had more cloud than was expected and felt slightly cooler with occasional showers. The rain finally made it over the hills to the north on Sunday evening to dampen the dry ground… but not enough for a soaking.
