    What is the temperature in farenheit in January? What is the average temperature all year?

    Hi, I go to Lanzarote in early March. Did I expect rainy days? Does the sun set on the tanning bath?

  5. Michael on Jan 08, 2013

    Check the page “Weather” on this site, you have a link “Lanzarote Climate” with all year climate in Celsius.

    Early march, its winter season still, so you can have very few rainy days and its only few hours a day.

    We went in late December last year and the weather, like others have said, was hit and miss. Some days were warm and sunny, other days were cloudy and cool and it rained a few times too!

    It was still too cool to be sitting at the beach, but if you sat in a sheltered spot by the pool or on your balcony, then it was warm enough to tan. Sometimes when the weather isn’t brilliant, it’s a good time to get out and explore the island.

    Some people make the mistake in thinking that the Canaries have summer weather all year round. If you go with the feeling that the weather will be pleasant rather than hot you won’t be disappointed.

    Sorry to tell you this but you’ll need to pack warm clothes to wear during the evening, so don’t get caught out.

    So many people turn up at the Airport with just hand luggage and the clothes they’re wearing only to find out what they left the UK wearing has to last them the full week!

    However…….. make sure you take your swimming costumes too – in other words, cater for every eventuality is the best advice.

    Thanks Steamy for that, yes i heard its chilly at night so will be prepared, just a little warnth during the day would be great after the cold and damp of Ireland.
    thanks again

    they’re right about the unpredictable weather but on the plus side i spent new years in the canaries a few years ago and the weather was beautiful, mid to high 20’s everyday and warm enough to wear a t-shirt at night.

    We’ve sunbathed by the pool and on the beach and got a tan the last 3 years in Feb when the weather is similar to Jan – just keep out of the wind.

    If you’re feeling geeky, this site has just about everything you need to get an idea of the weather http://www.wunderground.com/history/station/60040/2012/1/14/MonthlyHistory.html.

    www.thespainweather.net is a national service and is normally very accurate. Wunderground is good but it shows a picture of Fuerteventura instead.

  16. Damian on Jan 10, 2013

    >but it shows a picture of Fuerteventura instead

    I think that’s their nearest webcam-enabled weather station (and not far enough to make much difference weather-wise). I does give you the helpful ability to look at daily videos of the webcam history so you can get a very good feel for the weather patterns if you are so inclined!

  17. David myers on Jan 10, 2013

    I prefer to look at Tu Tuiempo.net which shows the records for the actual weather of previous years and months
    All data is recorded at the airport and if you have a good look at this you will see just how warm or cold it was on any day of the year
    The hottest day last year in Feb was on 17″@ 21.9 deg.
    The coolest day last year in Feb. was on 12″ @ 10.8 deg.
    The av. temp. for the month was 16 deg
    Hope i have read the data correctly

    Hi David – many ways to skin a cat!

    FWIW the above link shows you averages, a calendar view of the weather and a full daily history (if you scroll down far enough). And no, I don’t work for wunderground 😉
