Tenerife Weather 18 to 24 July
It was a hot week across Tenerife with an orange level weather alert raised for extreme temperatures at the start of the week. Although they never quite reached the heights predicted (37C in the shade) it was still blisteringly hot during the first half of the week. Calima meant that it seemed cloudy in places with sand-filled skies causing irritation to eyes and breathing. By the weekend the Calima had eased and there was more blue in the sky.
