The weather forecasts offered by the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) already anticipated it. After three days of lower temperatures, snow has visited the Principality of Asturias in the middle of May. The level was announced to be around 1,400 – 1,500 meters high, and it did not fail. At eleven in the morning, the road up to the Port of San Isidro that connects Asturias with León began to be covered and the networks were soon filled with videos.
The flakes are not going to allow the ski resorts to reopen, but without a doubt, given the scarcity of rain and the drought, which in the north does not hit in the same way but is appreciated, the swamps and rivers will appreciate this little white blanket . Far from the busy roads, in the heart of the Picos de Europa, the peaks have also been covered, with up to 12 centimeters of snow accumulating in the Vega del Picu Urriellu.
In the next few hours it does not seem that the weather is going to change. The forecast for the weekend is for rain and cold, although the temperatures will rise. Everything seems that autumn, even winter, has decided to step on spring’s ground in the north.
