From AEMET:

Instability in the Mediterranean

Information produced on 5 September 2020

It is expected that next Monday, September 7th, an isolated depression will form at high levels (DANA) in the Mediterranean area, between the Balearic Islands and the peninsular coast, remaining, with high probability, in that area almost stationary until Wednesday 9th. The cold air in the middle and upper levels of the atmosphere, together with the temperature and high humidity content of the Mediterranean air on these dates, will give rise to a situation of considerable instability. This mass of humid air will be driven at low levels by prevailing east and north-east winds.

With the uncertainty that characterises these situations in terms of the exact location of the highest rainfall and most intense storms, it is highly likely that the Balearic archipelago will experience heavy or very heavy rainfall, persistent in some areas, and accompanied by storms. It is also likely that such intensities will occur in areas of Catalonia, where rainfall will start tomorrow, Sunday, and in the Community of Valencia. It cannot be ruled out that other provinces in the south-east of the peninsula will also be affected to a lesser extent.

As of Thursday, within a margin of uncertainty as to the evolution of this meteorological situation, it is likely that the DANA will begin a shift towards the east, tending to diminish and eventually disappear the associated adverse weather.

Unless there is an unforeseen development, no new notes will be issued on this weather situation, so AEMET recommends a more detailed and updated monitoring of it through its forecasts and warnings of adverse events. All this can be consulted on its website: www.aemet.es

Dana had a hit and Eurovision win with "All Kinds Of Everything", looks like that is what we can expect this week. 😉

Indeed and 'Written On The Wind' was a bit hit, so a later career in meteorology 😀

Fortunately, AEMET have removed their weather warning for Cataluña, although it's still in place for the Balearics. It looks as though they now expect the bad weather to travel north rather than north-west.

Not bleeding likely, girl! I've still got some gravel to spread, and don't want to be rained off.
