Morocco's Mad May Weather - UPDATE

For those who were sceptical about our reporting of the weird weather in Fez, we present...Today!

A few showers in the morning, then a spell of warm sunny weather. That lasted until about 3.30 in the afternoon. Suddenly the temperature dropped from 28 to 19 Celsius. Thunder rumbled overhead like a djinn on a rampage. The hail storm that followed produced stones large enough to cause pain and that cracked down like ricochetting bullets off every hard surface.

Then came the rain. An absolute downpour. The pictures below will give you a slight taste of the flooding that followed. Click on images to enlarge.
