Alicante weather lottery to bring extreme downpours. Some areas can expect to be hit with 150 l/m2 on Friday, October 22.
On Friday the weather in Alicante will be a lottery. Some areas can expect to be hit with extreme downpours. Other areas will see barely a drop of rain though.
The Laboratorio de Climatología – from Alicante University took to Facebook to share news of the impending weather. It said: “Tomorrow the rains may be heavy in some areas, while in others it will hardly rain at all.
“The most likely scenario is that of locally heavy or very heavy downpours in the area between Sueca and Teulada-Moraira, with accumulated rainfall that could exceed 100 -150 l/m2 in some places.
“Heavy rain may also occur in the Pitiusas. Occasional problems may occur due to the intensity of the rain. In addition, downpours may be accompanied by thunderstorms and the formation of sea sleets is not ruled out.
“In the Serpis valley, inland Marina Alta, El Comtat and in the east of L’Alcoià, rainfall will be moderate in general, perhaps somewhat more persistent due to the gregal wind.”
According to the experts, the central strip of the Alicante province may avoid rain altogether.
The post added: “On the other hand, it is common for the area around the Mar Menor and the coast of the Vega Baja to experience the rains because the gregal wind picks up moisture again in the absence of a mountain system to the northeast. There are models that do not rule out locally heavy showers accompanied by thunderstorms there, others predict a few hours of moderate rainfall.”
