It's pelting down in Mellieha…and many other places

 

The first rain of the season, or the last rain of the year … barely a week before the start of the meteorological year, Malta is being deluged by a storm. Forecast since late last week, the storm comes three days shy of the feast of St Bartholemew, to whom, Maltese tradition gives the Keys, symbolising the opening of the wet season.

Reports of heavy rain are comming in from Mellieha and Rabat, where, in the latter, hail is also reported to have fallen.
