Northern Spain gets snow

León, December 14th 2008

This video is from Sunday December 14th in Leon, and is just one example of the weather in northern Spain in the last few days.

Many mountain passes has been closed for cars and some you needed chains to be able to pass. On one mountain pass in Asturias, 50 cars needed to be rescued.

Pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago will have a hard time on the higher mountain passes these days as well, 40cm of new snow was reported around O Cebreiro a few days ago. Some of this might have melted during the day, but still.

To get an idea of the weather for the next few days, have a look at the TVE weather report. More on this in the forum.
