A COLD snap has hit Spain as temperatures plummet across the country, with snowfall in northern regions and a chilly breeze along the Mediterranean coast.
State meteorological agency AEMET has forecast heavy and persistent rainfall in Cantabria on Monday November 7, with snow above 800 to 1,000 metres throughout the northern half of the peninsula.
Yellow warnings have been put in place in Burgos, Palencia, Leon, Cantabria and Asturias.
Northern Galicia, Cantabria and Navarra have been enshrouded in cloud and battered by rain all day, while showers and brief storms have hit the Balearics.
Exceptions include Extremadura and Andalucia, where sun has penetrated the cloud cover to bring a touch of warmth as winter’s icy fingers beckon.
