A post from the climatology lab at the University of Alicante explains that a blast of ‘maritime polar air’ from Greenland will sweep West-East across Spain this week.

The lab said the blast will also bring strong winds and high waves to coastal waters around Spain.

The lab added that Alicante will see the first snowfall this winter between Friday evening and Saturday morning.
