...and just in time for a return to unsettled weather. Perhaps some folk prefer I stay away!
A weak but very persistent upper-level trough will provide enough lifting to generate some showers, at least through Wednesday and probably longer. This trough is associated with a weakening surface cyclone to the northwest of Iberia, so precipitation will be heaviest in northern Spain. While showers in the south will be scattered in coverage and not generally heavy, they too will be persistent and ultimately affect most of the region. The current radar shows two rain bands over Huelva and Cadiz provinces.
Since this is May, there will be considerable sunshine between showers. The best chance of thunderstorms will be over mountains. Temperatures will be slightly below seasonal norms.
