The rain in Spain falls on the mainland

The majority of people would have spent most of this year cursing the rain with the weather playing havoc with the carnivals and other events, but rainfall in the Balearics over the past five months, has again been lower than usual and has done little to replenish the region's dwindling natural resources. In stark contrast to the rest of the country, which yet again was battling flash foods in some parts yesterday and has registered an unusually high level of rainfall since September, the Balearics has missed out. The first term of the hydro-meteorological year has been one of the most humid since 1950, according to the National Meteorological Office. Rainfall on mainland Spain from the start of November through to the end of January was between 70 and 80 per cent higher than usual and while February's rainfall was slightly less, the start of March has been a wet one.
