To anyone in the coastal Almeria/Murcia regions of Spain: there is A VERY severe weather warning for this coming Saturday, Saturday night and Sunday.

Very very heavy rains and extremely strong storm force winds are expected.

Spanish TV and radio stations are giving out special warnings at the moment; they tend to do that only if it's likely to be really really severe.

Best get yourselves to a sheltered location and one not at risk of sudden flooding either from the rain directly or from the runoff back down from the hills and mountains inland.

Please pass the word on to anyone you might know in that region of Spain.

Very heavy rain and strong winds last night here in Benidorm, as usual there was flooding on LaTorreta with folks being woken up in the early hours and told to move to higher ground. Settled down today and now looking reasonable for the next few days.
Cheers

Are you in the van and staying here? http://campinglosgallardos.com/

British-owned I believe? Thinking we might spend a short time there next winter.

No it wasn't.
Just watch the Spanish TV to see the many reports on all the damage done by the torrential rains and storm force winds on Saturday and into Sunday morning.
Several people seriously injured.

We had heavy rain on Saturday Night at a camper stop just outside Vera but it was nice enough to have a walk into Vera itself on Sunday morning and found a "Pet Blessing" procession through the town. Found a roast chicken shop about 2.30 pm, walked back and had that for lunch outside the van. Very still and warm night.
Wind got up a bit as we moved away from Vera and it is blowing a bit now at Los Escullos, Cabo de Gata, but was still nice enough to walk to the beach in shirtsleeves this afternoon..

Love it(y) Lovely forecast for the coming week here in southern UK. No wind no rain and nice temperatures....:cool:(y)



Well Mr B you got your rose tinted specs on?

Rain for tomorrow and Wenesday, gale force winds too.
Just a touch of jack frost before the rain tomorrow as well, I grant you though just in double figures for both days.

From the Beeb! where else, where else can you get accurate and informative News and Weather?

I've just finished stocking our Underground Bunker with 2 years supply of food.
YES SIR! Mr B I'm ready for WW3, Armageddon, Famine, millions of job loses, House price fall (ours seems to be bucking the trend somewhat though) and the invasion of those pesky Russians ;)
