The precipitation levels in October are by far the highest of any month of the year. This is because of the weather phenomenon know as a “Gota Fria” or “Cold Drop”.
A Gota Fria only occurs on the eastern coast of Spain. The colder air from the Atlantic in the west and the Pyrenees in the north meets the warmer air on the east coast. The result of this can be devastating. It’s worth pointing out that this does not happen every year. A typical gota fria will bring high winds of up to 150 km’s per hour, heavy rain and large hail stones.
