IF you thought summer had arrived early think again – temperatures are predicted to plummet by up to 16 degrees Celsius over the weekend, with snow forecast for parts of Spain.

A front sweeping in from the west will bring with it strong winds, showers and a sharp drop in temperatures, according to the State Agency of Meteorology (AEMET).

Today, cold and rainy weather is set to hit much of the northern half of the country, but the worst weather is predicted for the Basque Country, Navarre, Aragon, Catalonia, La Rioja, northeast Castilla y León. Snow will fall between 1,000 to 1,200 metres in the Cantabrian mountain range and elsewhere between 1,400 and1,500 metres.

Strong winds are forecast for mountainous regions and the coasts with the predicted drop in temperatures supposed to hit the Mediterranean costas tomorrow (Saturday).

Then on Sunday stormy showers are predicted for the Mediterranean coasts although temperatures should start rising again, says AEMET.
