Who can forget the snows that descended on Madrid last year and brought everything grinding to a halt. And now we hear theories circulating that state that there will indeed be a second Filomena in January 2022. In January 2021, 1,35 million kg of snow fell for 30 hours non-stop. This led to a whopping £1,398 million lost whilst the snow blocked all movement in Spain's big cities such as Madrid. Last year a 14 year old boy, Jorge Rey, from Cabañuelas was able to predict Filomena and has once more predicted another Filomena for next year. He has said that “Winter will be hard and throughout the second half of January we will have an episode of heavy snowfall. It could be said that a new Filomena will come.” He has also predicted that there will be heavy rainfall between February and March and will return in April and May. However, there is no 100% guarantee that this will happen as according to genuine meteorologists and scientists, there is no way of knowing or being able to predict the weather in such a long-term way. According to the Agencia Estatal de Meteorología the probability of last year's events happening again is very low. These natural phenomenons only occur once every so often and it is very hard to predict such events in advance.
