Santorini microclimate

Santorini's weather is quite peculiar. The phenomena may be abrupt, may change very quickly and, most important, may not be the same on the island.
In Fira, at around 12.00 at noon, the weather was partly sunny. Then, behind Thirasia, a "curtain" of rain appearred, which started coming to Santorini.

In a few moments, the raind had covered the caldera and the volcano.

Then, it arrived in Fira. After a shower for about 10 minutes, the rains stopped and the sun came out again!
