Cold front from the Arctic will force temperatures to plummet this weekend, says met office
04 November 2016 @ 09:40

A MASS of polar air heading for Spain means temperatures are set to drop by around 13ºC across the country from Saturday, putting an end to the long Indian summer which has seen beaches occupied in the first week of November.

High altitudes, especially in the north of the mainland, will even see snow.

Generalised rainfall is expected from Friday onwards, with the cold snap hitting the north and north-west first and gradually working its way down the country, meaning the Costas are likely to get a day's respite before the first taste of winter bites.

Weathermen from the State meteorological agency, AEMET, say the chilly front is currently hovering around the coast of Portugal, meaning the Canary Islands will not escape as the drop in temperature will wend its way south down the Atlantic.

The Mediterranean, traditionally one of the warmest parts of mainland Spain, will wave a tearful goodbye to the warmth and sunshine from the weekend, but the mercury will continue at levels somewhat higher than typically seen in early to mid-November, AEMET reveals.
