Snow in the Pyrenees
Following the heatwave which affected the whole of Spain last week, when temperatures reached 40ºC in many parts of the country, the weather on Tuesday provided a reminder that we are in fact only in the middle of spring, with snow falling in many parts of the Pyrenees.

This snowfall provided wintry tableaux in locations such as Los Llanos del Hospital, a cross-country skiing resort in the Benasque valley in the province of Huesca (region of Aragón), and throughout the Pyrenees and other northern mountain ranges the overnight temperatures are again forecast to drop below zero on Wednesday night. In many parts of the mountains along the border between France and Spain even Wednesday's maximum temperatures were forecast to remain close to 5ºC.

These distinctly cool conditions in the mountains of the north are forecast to continue until the weekend, while maximum temperatures of close to 30ºC will be recorded in parts of the south-west.
