Weather Forecast for Tenerife from 20th December to 26th December

The Weather in Tenerife 13th December to 19th December

Like many places around the world Tenerife’s weather continues to behave in a bizarre manner with all four seasons occurring in some locations not only over the course of a week, but over 24 hours. The island experienced wind, rain, snow, bruma (low cloud that resembles fog), sunshine and unseasonably hot temperatures. The unsettled weather front continued to dump rain in the south of Tenerife with localised areas reporting very heavy downpours. Because of the direction the weather, the rain never made it across to the north coast where for much of the week it was dry, sunny and very warm. That might sound good news for visitors to the north, but the continued absence of any decent rainfall at this time of year isn’t great news for the north’s farmers. Much of the island experienced a hike in temperatures on Wednesday when what seemed like a mini calima pushed thermometers over the 30C mark. An orange alert for high winds was declared for Friday with winds of up to 100kmh predicted for the coasts and 120kmh in high areas. Thankfully wind speeds didn’t match predictions and turned out to be windy more than anything else. The week ended with localised weather patterns making a summary for Tenerife almost impossible as some areas experienced heavy rain whilst others enjoyed a beautifully hot sunny weekend.

The mixed weather conditions should continue till the end of Tuesday. After that AEMet are predicting a mainly sunny Christmas on Tenerife. With a change in the weather direction, temperatures should drop by a couple of degrees towards the end of the week before settling at a summery 24C on the coasts over the Christmas weekend. A yellow alert for winds of up to 70/75 kmh in high areas remains in place until Wednesday night.

Weather in South Tenerife – A mix of sun, cloud and rain on Monday and Tuesday. From then it should be mostly sun with occasional cloud right through to the end of the week. Temperatures should be around 24C.

Weather in North Tenerife – More or less exactly the same as the south. Temperatures should be around 24C.

Weather in East Tenerife – Looks like the hottest place to be on Tenerife at the start of the week with temperatures around the 26/27C mark . Apart from that it’s the same pattern as everywhere else except there’s a slightly less chance of rain on Tuesday. Temperatures in the east could drop by a noticeable 4C towards the end of the week.

Weather in the Mount Teide Crater – Strong winds continue to blow in the crater for the next couple of days. There could be some snow today and after that it should be sunny for the rest of the week in the crater and on the summit of Mount Teide. Temperatures in the crater should be around 9C at the start of the week rising to 13C for the weekend and -1 on the summit rising to 2/3C for the weekend

At the moment the cable car is still not operating.

So far today it looks lovely and sunny in Santa Cruz, rainy in the crater, a mix of sun and cloud on the north coast but Playa las Vistas in Los Cristianos in the south looks very dark and dreary.
