Wintry weekend forecast – first snows to hit high altitudes


The Spanish met office says winter is about to hit Spain any day now – in fact, the first snows have fallen at high altitudes in the north.

An Atlantic front hitting the north-west first will gradually drift south-east, bringing with it a significant fall in temperatures and snow at lower altitudes.

The Canary Islands which, due to their geographical location typically get the best weather, could experience a wet weekend, especially in the north where downpours are likely to be heavy.
