Spain under snow in January 2018
Spain is experiencing difficult weather conditions for this week-end celebrations of the Magi!
The entire north-westt quarter is hit by the snow!
Andalusia as soon as you climb a little in altitude it snows as in Antequera (Malaga), Lucena (Cordoba) and especially in Granada where the whole city is under the snow. The weather conditions of the Andalusian ski resort of Pradollano are also perfect.
Even the access road to the Basque Country by the A63 motorway is cut off due to heavy snowfall this 7th of January 2018.
There are nearly 4,500 vehicles trapped in the snow across the country. Including 3000 on the AP-6 that connects Madrid to North West Castilla. DGT work to open the road, but not before the night !
The cities under snow in Spain where ?
As we said above, Granada is affected, but Segovia is probably the most affected city, for the pleasure of tourists seeing the aqueduct under several inches of snow.
Also note, even if it happens every year or so, the magnificent walls of Avila, but hey it is more than 1000 meters from Altitude. And of course Burgos also well in altitude and more used to this winter weather.
And it is not over because it will snow until late in the evening of Sunday, January 7, 2018 especially north west of Madrid, with a return of the sun on January 8.
