Weather in Spain in June

Will it rain or shine?

By

It's summer time now in Spain, so you know what that means: much of the country is bathed in glorious sunshine, but that doesn't mean you're guaranteed great weather.

While Spain doesn't get as much rainfall as other European countries, some rain is a possibility at any time of year.

Remember that we're talking averages here. Weather throughout the world is unpredictable, so don't take what you read on this page as gospel.
