The majority of the precipitation falls in the winter but the total number of wet days per month is very misleading as rains are very light and fall for less than one hour before blue sky return. The total amount of rain that falls on Tenerife is much less than in Europe.
There is a north south climate divide to Tenerife caused by the high mountains in the centre of the island. This divide is unnoticeable during the hot, dry summers but in winter the north is cooler and wetter than the south.
