February can normally be a bit wet and windy (at least in Frigiliana). So quite lucky this year!

This year seems to be a dry year after two wet years. We will worry next year if it is a dry year again and our water reservoirs get little water.

Same here in Portugal. We have now had 40 days in the Algarve with sun but no rain. The ground is like concrete and the farmers are moaning like mad.

The smaller rivers have dried up.

I know it's bad for the tourists but we do need some rain!

The water compaines in the uk are saying there maybe draught conditions this year as theres not been enough rain!! you have to laugh at the joke that is the uk . nothing to do with all the leaks in pipes and reservoirs then?!

The water level in the Lake Vinuela Reservoir currently stands at 85.29% - in November they were having to release water as it was at just under 100% capacity.

This is just over 1% lower than this week last year but much higher than the average over the last 10 years of 56.47%.

The local Farmers are all asking for some rain - but not until they finish getting the Olive crop in this weekend.

Normally always out last 2 weeks in February (not this year), last two years has rained 50% of the time, sometimes very heavy, in 2010 just rained for day after day with high winds, great for walking down the front.

This year seems very dry, last easter very wet, hoping dry this year.

Always pack light weight water proofs when visiting this time of year, are already in the case for next months visit, a bit of rain will not stop me getting about, people to see, bars to visit etc.
