We base the humidity comfort level on the dew point, as it determines whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid. Unlike temperature, which typically varies significantly between night and day, dew point tends to change more slowly, so while the temperature may drop at night, a muggy day is typically followed by a muggy night.

The chance that a given day will be muggy in Tenerife is essentially constant during April, remaining around 0% throughout.

For reference, on August 31, the muggiest day of the year, there are muggy conditions 45% of the time, while on January 14, the least muggy day of the year, there are muggy conditions 0% of the time.

This section discusses the wide-area hourly average wind vector (speed and direction) at 10 meters above the ground. The wind experienced at any given location is highly dependent on local topography and other factors, and instantaneous wind speed and direction vary more widely than hourly averages.

The average hourly wind speed in Tenerife is gradually decreasing during April, decreasing from 12.9 miles per hour to 12.3 miles per hour over the course of the month.

For reference, on July 17, the windiest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 15.8 miles per hour, while on October 7, the calmest day of the year, the daily average wind speed is 10.4 miles per hour.

Definitions of the growing season vary throughout the world, but for the purposes of this report, we define it as the longest continuous period of non-freezing temperatures (≥ 32°F) in the year (the calendar year in the Northern Hemisphere, or from July 1 until June 30 in the Southern Hemisphere).

Temperatures in Tenerife are sufficiently warm year round that it is not entirely meaningful to discuss the growing season in these terms. We nevertheless include the chart below as an illustration of the distribution of temperatures experienced throughout the year.

Growing degree days are a measure of yearly heat accumulation used to predict plant and animal development, and defined as the integral of warmth above a base temperature, discarding any excess above a maximum temperature. In this report, we use a base of 50°F and a cap of 86°F.

The average accumulated growing degree days in Tenerife are rapidly increasing during April, increasing by 495°F, from 1,391°F to 1,886°F, over the course of the month.

We draw particular cautious attention to our reliance on the MERRA-2 model-based reconstructions for a number of important data series.
