The rain yesterday in Bigastro was neither torrential nor long lasting. In nearby Rojales though they had a right downpour which flooded the streets. Luckily it only lasted half an hour.
We probably won’t fair as well today though because the area is on orange alert for rain and yellow alert for a thunderstorm. Take comfort in the fact that Andalucia is worse off, there the risk is red. What we have is an anticyclone centred over the Canary Islands pushing against the one centred over Britain. Basically, there is a lot of heavy cloud up there with a load of water just waiting to come down on us.
