The weather for a small area like Los gigantes is very difficult to predict. Tenerife is a tiny spec on charts and Los Gigantes is a tiny spec on a map of Tenerife. Rain was forecast for Friday night therefore events in the square were cancelled. On the night there was heavy rain in Puerto Santiago and non in Los Gigantes. The event could have gone ahead. The organisers and the entertainers are not prepared to risk damage to all the electrical kit in the event of a heavy shower.
My other half is cursing at the moment. The band "Phoenix" he plays in are due to play in the square tonight. They have spent the last three hours collecting kit modifying their lighting system etc and now large black clouds are looming............... they will make the decision around 5pm
As far back as I can remember, and I've been here 21 years now, we have never lost so much business to bad weather in a month. Everyone hopes the weather will improve for the busier Xmas holiday time, but now to rub salt in the wound it is looking like no one will get here because airports are closed because of snow!
I find www.eltiempo.es
(then type in Puerto de Santiago in the search box) is fairly accurate for the immediate day and possibly the next day but don't take too much notice of predictions after that.
......ooops better go and batton down the hatches its started to rain (at least it's warm rain)!
