Rainfall in Barcelona: Precipitation
The annual average of rainfall in Barcelona are 90 days. But it must be mentioned, that entire days of rain and days with completely covered skies are very rare and are less frequent than in the continental climate. And it must also be said that it's rarely raining day after day.The summer thunderstorms can be very rough but short and after a a thunderstorm, within a few minutes the sun is shining again and the sky is blue without a cloud. Snow is very rarely seen in Barcelona and is something exceptional and when this happens the surprise of the "Barceloneses" is that big that they enjoy the moment a lot. But if it lasts a bit longer (which is very unusual) the joy is vanishing imAveragetely and they want to go back" to normality" and that means a clear sky and sun!!
