After a couple of sunny days, the weather forecast for the Maltese Islands is rather bleak today with thunderstorms taking over. The pluviophiles (lovers of rain) will be happy; not so much those who need to venture out and forgotten their umbrellas, or those who get stuck in the inevitable traffic jams.

The advent of rain also sees social media feeds full of photos (rain is very photogenic)!
