The Weather in Tenerife 18th to 24th October
Once again AEMet didn’t get it quite right. They started off well on Monday, but after that reality and forecasts parted company. The storm travelling north affected the eastern Canary Islands more than the west and subsequently there was more cloud in the first half of the week on south eastern sides than north western. Although there was some rain, mainly for short periods in southern parts in the first half of the week it didn’t turn out to be the rainy week that was predicted. As is usual most rain occurred during the night and overall in the south it was much sunnier than predicted. After Monday the north enjoyed the lion’s share of beautifully sunny weather…until Sunday which brought a mix of rain, cloud and sunny spells; it was almost the opposite to what the forecasters had predicted.
