First of all, you have to take into account that, although Tenerife is ‘the island of the eternal spring’. Fortunately or unfortunately, not all parts of the island always have mild temperatures.
Factors affecting the weather in Las Lagunetas
The difference in temperature from one point to another on the island is mainly due to three factors:
• Altitude. Generally the temperature decreases as we gain altitude, therefore, on the coast it will normally be much warmer than at the top of a mountain.
• Trade winds. These winds come from the northeast, loaded with moisture from the Atlantic Ocean, they cool the islands and create different local effects.
• Topography. Tenerife is a mountainous island dominated by Spain’s highest mountain, Mount Teide. The high mountain areas are far away from the moderating effect of the ocean, so more extreme temperatures can occur in these areas.
