Rain to soak Alicante’s Semana Santa celebrations

LENTEN TIDES: Rain will hit Alicante on Thursday morning

THE Spanish meteorology agency (AEMET) has issued a yellow weather warning for this coming Thursday, predicting gale-force winds and waves up to three metres high.

AEMET predicts the whole of Alicante’s coastline will be hit be the downpour, which will begin early on Thursday morning.

The rain could soak religious celebrations, which take place the whole of this week until Easter Sunday.

However AEMET has yet to issue warnings for Friday and the weekend, meaning there is still hope of a sun-baked Semana Santa.
