Heavy rain in Spain puts dampener on holiday sun
By Brett Gibbons24 hours agoTrinity Mirror
Britons heading to Spain for some late summer sunshine will face spells of heavy rain and the risk of thunderstorms as the holiday season ends with a bang.
Slow-moving storms are expected to linger across large areas of Spain and Portugal during the early part of this week with eastern coastal areas of the mainland and the Balearic islands worst affected.
Destructive flash floods were reported last week in Toledo, Spain, and the Bragança region of Portugal, with up to 50mm of rain falling in a 24-hour period.
However, further slow-moving thunderstorms developed through Sunday and are expected to persist into Monday as low pressure dominates throughout much of Iberia.
A spokesperson for The Weather Channel said: “An upper trough will begin to fill whilst moving over southern to central Iberia during Monday.
“Additionally, the subtropical jet will extend over Morocco and eastern Iberia to the Balearic Sea, favouring the development of multi and supercell thunderstorms.
“An onshore flow, with the advection of a moist and warm marine air mass, will move into eastern and southern Iberia.
“The majority of thunderstorms are expected over eastern Iberia and the Balearic Islands once more on Monday with the risk of excessive rain, frequent thunderstorms and hail – potentially large.”

Ten people in total have died in Spain in the regions of Andalusia and Murcia due to flash flooding brought on by downpours. The heavy rains have also damaged homes, caused the collapse of two bridges and forced roads to close.
