Lanzarote Weather, March

The month of March brought some changeable weather to Lanzarote.

The start of the month the days were bright with some cloudy intervals and the occasional shower. It was perfect weather for the carnival & sardine processions in Arrecife – warm, dry and no wind. The weather changed on the 10th with some grey clouds and showers of rain although there were bright sunny patches too. Playa El Ancla in Costa Teguise during March 2011

We experienced some dramatic weather from the 11th to 15th March with thunder and lightening storms and high gusts of wind – Puerto del Carmen had a real downpour of rain on the 11th not what we wanted for the lead up to carnival in that resort but the actual day was fine.

A yellow alert was issued on the 12th and extended until the 15th March for heavy rain and adverse storm conditions. The 14th March brought hailstones (granizo) to Yaiza and Puerto Calero, the ground was covered in white balls which made it look like snow!  read more »
