Weather 22nd July 2016 – Los Cristianos/Las Americas

I’m tired this morning, it was a long and very hot night with temperatures never falling below 24°C so hard to sleep except when exhausted. 😦 This morning more of the same, there is no sun as yet, although it does seem to be trying hard to break through. The sky is brighter than yesterday at least I can see down to the coast and temperatures are just short of 26°C and it is heavy and airless.


Yesterday the calima made the heat feel even more overwhelming than it already was. From morning until night, it was Hot, Hot, Hot! Most of the time the mercury reached 33°C in the shade. In full sun, it was another day of high 40s. Despite that, the yellow alert ended early evening.

The following images are from Costa Adeje in the south of the island and Puerto de la Cruz in the north of the island and are taken from the webcam yesterday at 12.00, 3.00 and 5.00. These times are approximate and are at whatever is the nearest before or after the hour.

    Hi Queenies
    Just after your thoughts on a forecast I’ve been watching for when we come out there 10th Aug. Holiday weather are saying 19 degrees! I’m shocked giving it will be August!

    • Hi Kelly, What is the site you are looking at saying it is today? As I sit on my patio it is 35C in the shade and 47C in the sun. I suspect you could be looking at a general forecast for ‘Tenerife’ which usually defaults to the north airport which is always a lot cooler than everywhere else. Try looking at this website It won´t be 100% accurate because of all the microclimates but it will give you a more realistic picture of what to expect. I should also say only check up to 7 days maximum, anything longer is bound to be wrong!!

      Now looking in my crystal ball 🙂 I suspect August will be very much like it is at the moment, so hot and I ‘m sure you will have a lovely time. x
