Winter wonderlands: Spectacular Christmassy footage in mid-autumn
18 November 2019 @ 13:10

WITH temperatures dropping to as low as -8ºC in the north, parts of Spain remain coated with a thick blanket of snow – not unusual between Madrid and the Pyrénées in deep winter, but exceptionally rare for the first half of November.

Whilst the Mediterranean is chilly at night and 'coat weather' but not yet 'bracing' – colder than usual for the time of year – nearly a foot of snow has been seen in parts of the northern third of the mainland, and not just at high altitudes.

Spectacular photo footage that resembles central Europe in early February has yet to rival the snowmen on the beaches in Dénia and Jávea (Alicante province) seen in the winter of 2016-2017 – the first time this had happened since 1983 – but has certainly made a few viewers further south feel chilled looking at them, and will have left smiles on kids' faces as they got the day off school to go sledging and stage snowball fights.
