Rain possible this weekend as Aemet raises yellow alert

Graphic: Aemet.

Despite much excitement about the prospect of a major borrasco hitting us over the last week, Lola was always going to affect the mainland and not us, and it certainly did that with torrential rain in some parts of Spain continuing even today. Here, however, we might still get a drop of rain this coming weekend as an unstable rainy front is expected to reach us in the early hours of tomorrow. Aemet has raised a yellow alert for rain forecast to around 15mm in 1 hour, though mainly in the north and east of Tenerife. This doesn’t sound like a batten down the hatches job, but it might be worth taking an umbrella if we have to go out!
