Joy in the ski resorts as the first major snowfalls of the season arrive

The first big snowfalls of the season started falling in the early hours of Monday morning and have brought smiles to the faces of skiers, snowboarders and ski resort staff alike.

The state meteorological agency, AEMET, forecasts continuing heavy snowfall for most of Spain’s mountainous regions right through until Thursday.

It has not gone unnoticed across the social media networks that this latest weather front has been named Gerard, but AEMET was quick to clarify it has absolutely nothing to do with the heavily trending hit by Shakira that lambasts her former partner, Gerard Piqué.

In a message on Twitter, AEMET said "The assignment of this name is a complete coincidence. It was the French meteorological service (Météo-France) which published the name Gérard at the beginning of the season, in September, which in the current context is ironic."
