The Weather in Tenerife 27th December to 2nd January
Again the Spanish Meteorological Office (AEMet) were close with their weather predictions for Tenerife except that rain was hardly anywhere to be seen for most of the week. There were reports of it ‘tonking down’ in some southern areas midweek and there was some light rain on the north coast on Tuesday night, but nothing to write home about. After that it was a mainly sunny New Year weekend and although temperatures have dropped to the seasonal normal on New Year’s Day in Puerto de la Cruz it was still 17C at 3am in the morning. Not exactly balmy, but temperate enough for short party dresses at the open air New Year shindigs. New Year’s Day, like Christmas Day, was an absolute stunner.
