The weather station

 The new weather station is where I thought it might be, in the building they constructed a few years ago that never seemed to have any purpose.

Often, the weather is very local e.g. it may be raining cats and dogs in Los Montesinos but be dry as a bone here in Bigastro.

We can now get up to date information from instruments that are literally on our doorstep. It's almost like having a weather station in your back garden.

Of course, you may well say, "but I live here, all I have to do is look out the window to know what the weather is at the moment". 

However, if you log into the Weathercloud service from the link I provided to the information from Bigastro, you can view a map of Spain and locate other weather stations located throughout the country. It is also useful if you are on holiday and want to know what is happening back home.
