The Weather Forecast for 29th July to 4th August
The pattern more or less reflected that of the previous week. It was hot and there was a lot of sunshine but many places also experienced quite a bit of cloud cover with parts of southern coastal areas experiencing a bit more cloud than northern coastal areas again. The cloud meant that it was actually a better week for walking on Tenerife.
Weather Forecast for Tenerife from 5th to 11th August
There seems to be a bit of confusion about the weather over the coming week, especially in English language speaking circles on Tenerife, with reports of weather alerts for high temperatures, calima, strong winds and wild seas. At Walking Tenerife we get our information from the Spanish version of AEmet, Spain’s Meteorological Office. The weather alert on Aemet is ONLY for turbulent seas affecting the south, south west and east coasts. However, the general forecast for Spain states that winds in the Canary Islands over the next few days will be moderate to strong coming from the north east. The winds will be stronger in the eastern islands rather than western areas. That does suggest calima but not one that requires a weather alert at the moment. What most people will notice is it’s hot and sunny.
Weather in South Tenerife – It’s going to be a very hot and sunny week with only a few clouds about although there might thick haze doing a good impression of clouds. Temperatures will start the week at around 30C before rising to 33C midweek before dropping to 27C for a couple of days and rising to a searing 29/31C over the weekend. There is a yellow level weather alert for choppy seas until Wednesday and the second half of the week will be breezy.
Weather in North Tenerife – It will be a hot, sunny week with temperatures remaining quite stable, between 24 and 27C. There’s a sharp rise on Sunday when temperatures jump to 32C so possibly into alert territory. At the moment there are no alerts in place for the north coast.
Weather in East Tenerife – Similar to the north with temperatures staying around 23/25C until Sunday when they go up to 28C. The weather alert for choppy seas affects the east coast.
Weather in South West Tenerife – Once again a mirror to the south, the south west starts the week at 32/33C before falling a couple of degrees between Thursday and Saturday and then heading up again for Sunday. The weather alert for wild seas affects the south west and, also like the south, it will be a breezy end to the week.
Weather in the Mount Teide Crater – It’s going to be a sunny week in Teide National Park this week. Temperatures in the crater will vary between 21C and 25C, whilst on the summit they will be between 8C and 10C.
So far today webcams around Tenerife show a mainly sunny morning across Tenerife.
