Spring in Tenerife to be warmer than normal

Primavera en Tenerife / Spring in Tenerife (Canary Islands)

Head of predictions for State Meteorological Agency, AEMET, Fermín Eliazaga (remember that name in case he’s wrong, LOL) says that Spring 2011, which will arrive at 00.21 hours on Tuesday, March 22nd, will be normal with regard to temperatures and rains and any significant variations are not expected, except in the Canaries and the Balearic Islands, where the thermometers will register higher than usual for the time of year.

Tenerife, often referred to as the “Island of Eternal Spring”, with a near perfect climate; mild temperate and moderate at all times of the year, does however, have seasonal differences in climate and these are most notable in the valleys of the upper reaches and on the north of the island, which burst into abundant displays of multi-coloured spring flowers. Like everything else that grows in Tenerife, nature doesn’t know how to do things half-heartedly, so the displays are spectacular.

It’s the best time of year to visit places like the Teno Mountains, the hamlet of Teno Alto or the Monte del Agua in particular. Just imagine a warm, balmy day, the smell of real fresh air and flowers and nothing but the sound of birdies twittering … beats traffic and hover mowers and the smell of exhaust fumes any day!
