Of particular importance is the orange alert in Álava, Guipúszcoa, Vizcaya and Cantabria with risk of up to 5 centimeters of snow. The yellow alert, found in the rest of the provinces, is for cold weather, reaching -8ºC / 17ºF in Burgos and Soria.
In Asturias, they are in yellow alert for snow. The good news is that this weekend 18 ski stations will open up offering over 350 km / 217mi of ski slopes in the Peaks of Europe and Pyrenean mountains.
Even the Spanish paradise of the Canary Islands is affected by the weather. In Gran Canaria, La Palma and Tenerife they are in yellow alert for high winds of up to 80 kph / 50 mph.
So if you are coming to Spain this winter, do not forget your coat!
