The Weather in Tenerife 12th March to 18th March
Yet again it was a mainly hot and sunny week across Tenerife. The week started out with a mix of sunny and cloudy spells in the south and north before midweek saw the briefest of rain showers, again on both coasts accompanied in parts by lightning. The odd weather was a prelim to another hot and sandy calima as we suspected. This time it was accompanied by strong winds which made walking in parts feel as though you were being blasted by a giant’s hair-dryer. Most parts of Tenerife were affected by the hot wind to a lesser or greater degree with first-hand reports from the south, south east and south west commenting on being buffeted by very hot and dry, sandy gusts. In the north and Puerto de la Cruz, the strong winds affected mainly Saturday mid-morning to afternoon whereas at least one resident in the south reported experiencing a noisy night between Friday and Saturday. As is usual it hiked up temperatures during the night with the northern hill town of La Matanza registering 23.5c at 11pm – definitely not normal for March.
