MADRID — Rainfall will decrease 40 percent in the Iberian peninsula by the end of the century because of global warming, a study published on Tuesday claimed.

Scientists from the National Climate Council studied the effect on different regions of Spain. 

It found the temperatures will rise progressively during each decade because of the inceasing emmission of greenhouse gases.

Finally, by the end of the century, the temperature will have risen by five to eight degrees.

It should be slightly cooler in coastal areas.

The effect of the rise of greenhouse gases will cut down cloud levels and reduce the amount of rain falling on Spain by about 40 percent.

This will mean the humidity will also fall, particularly during Spring and Summer.
