The Weather Forecast for 30th September to 6th October
Normally October can be like an extension of summer but the forecast for the coming week certainly sounds like the seasons on Tenerife are changing early. Temperatures will drop slightly as the week progresses and there will be a chance of rain every day. Most surprising of all is the possibility of snow showers on Mount Teide towards the end of the week. On the bright side, the sun should be out, about and smiling most days as well so not as gloomy as it might sound.
Weather Forecast for Tenerife from 23h to 29th September
As we weren’t here we can’t report first hand what the weather was like on Tenerife but it seems to have been a mix of long, sunny spells with cloudy intervals and some rain. When we flew into Tenerife Sur on Saturday morning, the air was crystal clear and we could see La Palma behind Tenerife long before we flew over Gran Canaria.
Weather in South Tenerife – It’s sun and cloud all week with more cloud as the week rolls on. There’s also the chance of rain every day – ranging from 5% this morning to 95% by Thursday. Temperatures will also drop from 27C today to 23C by the weekend.
Weather in North Tenerife – Much the same as the south with a mix of sun and cloud all week and a chance of rain every day (15 to 100%). Temperatures start the week at 24C and end it at 22C.
Weather in East Tenerife – Same story with sun and cloud and the likelihood of rain every day (15 to 100%). Like the north, temps will start the week at 24C and end it at 22C.
Weather in South West Tenerife – No difference even in the sunny south west. Sun and cloud all week with a 5 to 90% chance of rain each day. Temperatures will range from 29C today to 23C by the weekend.
Weather in the Mount Teide Crater – Even Mount Teide won’t escape the rain this week with rain forecast for the crater and the summit from Thursday to Friday. Even more incredible is the chance of snow showers on the summit on Thursday. If it happens, it would be the earliest we’ve seen snow on Mount Teide in 10 years. Temperatures in the crater will range from 11 to 17C whilst on the summit it will be between 2 and 8C.
So far today webcams around Tenerife show… not a lot. They all seem to be out of action. Coincidentally (or not) often a sign that things are not all blue skies and golden orbs in the south of the island.
