Lloret de Mar October weather

The weather has now taken a dramatic change for the worse just recently, not only in Lloret but up and down the coast they are seeing heavy rainfall which is flooding some roads making travel very difficult and dangerous in some areas. In Lloret we have had heavy rain but the temperatures are still very mild...even warm enough for a walk out in shorts and T shirts in between the bouts of rain!

After the month of October while the large clubs/disco close there is still a good selection of the smaller bars, restaurants shops etc, and just now the weather is still very it maybe an ideal time to take a relaxing few days holiday!
These photos were taken this morning (3/10/16) just as the sun was rising over Lloret de Mar beach.
