Severe storms initiating across southern Iberia – Apr 20, 12:15 UTC

Visible satellite imagery revealing an initiation of severe storms across the southern Iberia. Both southern Spain and Portugal are seeing storms pushed from the sea inland, bringing heavy rain / hail locally.

Moderate shear (30-50 kt DLS) combined with instability (500 J/kg MLCAPE) will be supportive of additional severe storms capable of producing large hail, heavy rains and tornadoes.
