Rain and shine weather records for Alicante

0

BETWEEN Monday and Tuesday, Alicante received half as much rain as it gets in an entire year on average.

It was  the city’s third-rainiest day in the last 80 years and the rainiest 24-hour period so far in the 21st century, according to AEMET, the Spanish meteorology agency.

The rain came as even more of a shock after the heat wave experienced across south eastern Spain over the weekend, which produced new March temperature records for Alicante.

At Alicante airport, the temperature reached a sweltering 34.8°c, the highest ever recorded in March (and also April). In 2016, temperatures of 34.8°c or above were only recorded seven times at the airport.
