    Weather at Roncesvalles

    After about 35 cm of snow, there will be winds up to 60 mph and temperatures down to -10 C!! It likely will be worse at higher elevations... It is not a good day to be leaving SJPdP. :)

    Is there still snow in the Pyrenees in the begining of May?

    I was planning on a summer Camino, but it might be a spring-summer one instead. Is there still snow (usually) in the begining of May on the Napoleon route in the Pyrenees?
