Mount Teide on Christmas Day - A White Christmas with Blue Skies in the north

Anyone who’s been following TripAdvisor or the Tenerife Forum (not to be confused with The Tenerife Forum) over the festive season will no doubt be under the impression that the weather in Tenerife has been pretty poor over the festive season with cool cloudy days and even some torrential rain which caused havoc on streets which weren’t built with flash flooding in mind.
Sitting here in my house in the allegedly ‘cool and cloudy’ north of Tenerife, I’ve followed threads on community forum websites with interest, especially considering that for the last two weeks (since my last post) we’ve had beautiful sunny days and temperate nights here in Puerto de la Cruz in the La Orotava Valley (apart from Tuesday 30th December when it chucked it down all day).

It’s been an absolutely wonderful Christmas, weather wise and I’m really pleased for all the many nationalities that chose the north of Tenerife as a destination to celebrate their Christmas.
This year the south got unlucky and I feel it for people who were looking for a warm escape from their dreary northern European winter, but it might make the people who always dismiss the north as being cool, rainy and cloudy in winter think again.

They say that there are only two things in life which are certain…and the weather isn’t one of them.
