Arctic Front Brings Freezing Temperatures, Heavy Snow to Northern Spain

MADRID – The arrival of an Arctic weather front on Friday brought plummeting temperatures and snowfall to mountainous areas of northern Spain, where several weather warnings have been issued by the state meteorological agency.

Morning commuters and children heading to school in near Pamplona, Navarre, and in the Basque region were greeted by flurries of fresh snow, while orange alerts for snow, warning residents to be prepared for adverse weather, were applicable to high altitude regions in the north, from La Rioja, through Cantabria and Castille and Leon to Asturias.

The fresh dump of snow caused traffic disruptions and closed some major roads in areas of the north.

Ground workers at the Pamplona-based Osasuna soccer club were forced to clear a snow-covered pitch in time for the evening’s fixture against Gimnastic Tarragona.

Yellow alerts for snow, advising people to be aware of the adverse weather, extended south as far as the rural areas in the north of the central Madrid province.

Conversely, the south of Spain was still suffering from a lack of precipitation and water restrictions were in place.
