Hi Dave,

that is a very moody sky, such dramatic colours!!

¿¿Did anyone suffer from the recent hail storms that have caused so much havoc and flooding this week???

We have had some storms in the south too, just rain so far though. This picture shows a bright line between the hot and cold fronts, shame it doesn't capture the noise that came with it :o

Regards, Sue
Thinking of visiting the beautiful Sierra de Grazalema in Andalucia?

No storms up here yet, but on Tuesday saw lots of swifts flying up the coast.  I thought they were escaping the bad weather further south.  Instead there’s been light rain mixed up with the Sahara and all the cars look very grungy.  The car wash companies must be delighted.

Asturias here - We have had over 15 hours of strong,gusting winds from all directions, heavy rain overnight and sun inbetween dark and dismal sky. Looks as it is here to stay for a while.
