Well I got what I wanted, rain. Problem is there is quite a bit of it. Mrs 'Q's plants for which I am responcible while she is in the UK have gone to dried out to bobing around in their pots, might have to do something about that . The river Aude at our end (about 22M wide here) is up a good 1.5M and very brown but seeing as for months now it has been a gentle trickle it is nothing to worry about.
Seems the centre of the depression is over Palma at the moment and hardly moving at all. I contacted the capitainerie at Gruissan where I keep my boat to see if it was in danger and whilst the sea levels rose to just under 5M at the harbour mouth wall they are down to under 2M now. Fortunately I am up the far end so no damage or problems. It would be nice if they had a live video feed.
I find EDF Tempo is a reasonable gauge for historic temperatures. Temperature triggers 'white' and 'Red' days. Looking at between 18th and 31st November last year we already had 10 white and three red days. Looking at historic data (Here) the day temp was 7 and the night -4 last year. When you compare that to this year it was 19 deg during the day and 14 last night yesterday (Here). Infact when you compare November 2013 to November 2014 the weather has been pretty good so far where I live.
