IT seems the rain in Spain falls mostly in March, according to recent figures from meteorological officials.
Despite rainfall during December, January and February being way below average, at around 143 litres (compared with average of 220 litres) the heavens opened in time for spring and for many of us it feels like it hasn’t stopped raining.
And while we may feel grateful we are not experiencing the prolonged freezing temperatures blasting through many parts of Northern Europe, it certainly has put a dampener on things.
The State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) has now confirmed that this is likely to be the wettest March since 1947.
But on the bright side, experts say all of Spain’s reservoirs are now completely full.
