Weather 19th November 2017 – Los Cristianos/Las Americas

Once again plenty of clouds but also there is sunshine this morning.  The air feels fresh and crisp but temperatures are only 23°C.

Saturday started nice but as it progressed the weather went slightly downhill. We didn’t see any rain in our village although there were plenty of black clouds overhead. Average temperatures were 24°C and only around 26°C out of the shade, I won’t say in sun because there was hardly any.

Looking at next weeks forecast I said yesterday we could see some autumnal and possibly showery weather and nothing has changed. At the moment the best day, both north and south of the island, seems to be Monday.

Switching on of Christmas Lights

The Christmas lights of Santa Cruz will have 15% more bulbs to twinkle and will reach more streets and neighbourhoods than in Christmas 2016. Specifically, more than 1.5 million LED bulbs will appear in streets, squares and green spaces at a cost of 200,000 euros.

The traditional act of lighting the Christmas lights in the capital will take place on November 23rd in the Plaza del Príncipe and this will be the start of a broad program of activities that the City Council is preparing for chicharrero this Christmas.

The singer Eva Ruiz, from Lanzarote, will turn on the lights. Eva who at just 19 years old is considered one of the most talented soloists of the new international pop scene after her work ’11 lives’.

Weather 18th November 2017 – Los Cristianos/Las Americas

When I took my photos this morning at 8.00am the sun was just poking its head over the top of our houses and hitting the land in front of us. There were lots of clouds around and they were grey but with plenty of breaks in them so I thought it would be a nice day. After waiting an hour it is brighter, nevertheless, Aemet says that we could see some very autumnal and possibly showery weather over the next day or so. Most rainfall, if we get it, will be light, at least near the coast, however it could be heavier inland.

Sadly for holiday makers yesterday was another grim day. Black clouds hung over the coast all the way from Los Cristianos to Los Gigantes (according to the webcams) and although we didn’t see the forecasted rain, average temperatures hung around 22°C so not one of the warmest days either. In fact Diario de Avisos posted a video showing it was snowing on Teide.
