We had 24 hours of rain on Saturday in Barcelona but by this morning it had gone and Sunday was one of those gorgeous Spring days in Barcelona when it's starting to get warm and you just want to go sit on a cafe terrace and think to yourself "Life is good!".
As you can see from the Yahoo/Weather.com forecast for Barcelona, it's going to be pleasantly warm (45-65º F or 7-18º C), especially in the sunny intervals, with not much chance of any rain.
It now feels like Spring here. Incredible to think that it was actually snowing in Barcelona just four weeks ago.

Wow! Amazing: a snowstorm in Barcelona, one that dumped 10cm of snow on the city yesterday, though today, there's hardly a trace of it left in the city centre. Uptown, there's still plenty, with school at least in that area of the city cancelled for lots of happy kids today.

Perhaps you've got to have lived in Barcelona for some time to understand why we're so excited: it's actually snowing in Barcelona right at this moment, which it never does (well, only really really occasionally).
But like, really, snowing, enough to make a snowman, as you can see…
As you can see from the Weather.com forecast for Barcelona, with temperatures 42-60ºF (6-16ºC), there's zero chance of a white Christmas here — though much of the rest of Spain has had heavy snowfalls.
It's raining this morning though we had one of those days yesterday when Barcelona looks its best: cold but sunny.
