While the Balearics continue to suffer from a lack of rain, the same cannot be said for much of the rest of Spain. During January, rainfall was up to 300% greater than is normally the case in Castile and Leon, just one region of the country that was particularly wet last month. Others, mainly in the north of the country, included Galicia and Asturias. By contrast, most of Catalonia and Valencia as well as parts of Murcia and Andalusia (plus the Canaries and of course the Balearics) were exceptionally dry. Rainfall in these regions was typically only 25% of what is considered normal.
