SPAIN’S national Met Office, AEMET, has issued an advisory warning of plummeting temperatures and ‘unstable’ weather across the country from today (Wednesday).

Forecasters are predicting ‘a marked drop in temperatures in the northern half of the country which will extend to the rest of the country and Mediterranean areas on Thursday.’

They say: “The drop in temperatures, caused by a mass of very cold air at high altitudes, will be accompanied by strong northerly winds which will increase the sensation of cold.

“The mass of air will be unstable and bring stormy weather which will be locally heavy and persistent in the far north of the country. The snow line will drop markedly with significant snowfall from 600/800m in Cantabria and the Pyrenees.

“It is likely that during the following days, storms and low temperatures will spread across the rest of the country to Mediterranean areas and with snow in mountainous areas and the northern plains.

“In the Canary Islands, it is expected that the unstable weather will continue with some heavy rain in the western islands.”

Currently there are yellow weather warnings in place across parts of the country – including the south of Spain – for the next three days but the ‘unstable’ weather means these could change at short notice.
