Snow arrived early in northern Spain this week, much earlier than normal.
The Picos de Europa mountain range saw 5 cm of snowfall, a record for this early in September. (Not much, maybe, but still a record.) Other mountainous regions of Cantabria are likewise blanketed in white.
It’s also cold. The mercury has plummeted in the Pyrenees, dropping to as low as -10C overnight.
Temperatures are expected to return to normal over the next few days.
