Hi there!

Last 7th and 8th of September, the coastal area of Catalonia (Spain) was affected by a very impressive tornado outbreak caused by a deep unstability over the area. The most of these tornadoes were water and landspouts, although there is a big possibility some of them were born inside of supercell storms.

Basically, an Atlantic Low went down to Leon Gulf (Mediterranean Sea) became in to a cutoff low, crossing the Iberian Peninsula and being accompannied by a very cold air at upper levels.

Here is the link to the topic with very impressive photographs of one of the tornadoes. Enjoy!!!:,4483.0.html
