Heavy snowfall in Spain – Temps far below average

6 Feb 2018 – Wintry conditions are still causing widespread problems on Spain’s roads and train services.

The cold front that hit Spain last Thursday is continuing to cause traffic problems throughout the country, with snow and frost affecting 350 roads and delaying the high-speed AVE train service.

The main airport in Madrid, Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas, was forced to cancel 70 flights on Monday because of the wintry conditions.

Below-average temperatures have been forecast until next Friday, according to the meteorological agency AEMET. AEMET representative Delia Gutiérrez said the temperatures will be “far below” the average “between 3ºC and 6ºC below across the country and up to 6ºC and 10ºC below average in mountainous areas.” The windchill factor will intensify the cold.

Temperatures are forecast to drop below -5ºC in many regions

AEMET has maintained alerts for snow, rain, cold, rough seas and the risk of landslides in 34 provinces. Huesca, Zaragoza, Cantabria, Catalonia, Castellón and Asturias have been issued an orange warning – the second highest in the warning system – for snowfall.

Córdoba, Granada, Jaén, Teruel, Cuenca, Guadalajara, Castilla y León, Madrid, Navarre, La Rioja and the Basque Country are under a yellow warning for snow.

Snow fell across the province on Sunday, but only a little in the capital.

On February 2, snow and ice brought chaos to one of Spain’s major freeways and closed four major roads.

Asturias, Cantabria and parts of the Basque Country were on red alert (extremely hazardous conditions) for snow, while 27 provinces were either on orange (Burgos, León, Palencia, Navarra, A Coruña, Lugo, Álava, Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa) or yellow (Murcia, Pontevedra, Ourense, Lleida, Girona, Barcelona, Segovia, Zamora, Guadalajara, Albacete, Tenerife, La Palma, Gran Canaria, Jaén, Granada and Almería).

  1. The forecast for entire Western Europe show arctic below zero temperatures for the entire 10 day period and possibly for much of February, This also indicates periods of cold easterly flows over the UK.
    However with a large Low parked over Iceland and a High over Northern Europe any North Westerly frontal systems will move in over the UK and then slides north into the Norwegian Sea, then rotate round the Low to dump their Snowfall on Greenland. Need that snow fall so they Warmists can say it’s melting again in the even shorter summer this year.
    It will be interesting to see if the Arctic ice season extends at the start and at the end.

  2. It also additionally to Montana continues to snow a lot in Alberta by the looks of it, and the Black Hills of South Dakota. This has been a very persistent pattern, and they still list all of these as drought areas, strangely enough, despite incessant rain.

  3. Spain is where much of Europe gets their vegetable crops, especially England.

    With all of the United Kingdom in a snow blanket, and the destruction of their farming industry, what are they going to do?

    By this time next year there will be food shortages, food hoarding, food riots ,and food export restrictions in Spain, Portugal, etc.

    It’s coming and the return of mass civilian starvation (Like 1300-1500 AD) are returning.

    We may have an advanced farming “industry” but we have way too many people for when things go bad…..things are going to go bad………..it’s bad, folks.

    • There are things that can be done, but will not be becuase Academia has taken the money, produced findings which can’t be re-verified and on investigation the research is utterly worthless.
      For example a university head of the top twenty Unis in the UK £350K to £400K per year. Similar in Australia, yet they can gag a Don for tell the truth that the system isn’t working.
      A climate degree cost a punter £9000 per year for 4 years, yet they have forgotten that the Sun is the primary source of heat, Water vapour is the Primary GHG to 97% or more, and Gore is a liar.
