MADRID-Heavy snows will fall in the northern parts of Spain causing problems with transport, forecasters warned.
A cold front in the north and central areas of the country and southern France will leave up to four centimetres of snow in some northern areas.
Already in some north-western coastal areas like Cantabria there were heavy snowfalls over the weekend, causing chaos on the roads.
Ángel Rivera, head of the Spanish National Meteorologícal Institute, said the fresh snowfalls will be on mountainous areas above 800-1,000 metres from Tuesday afternoon.
There will not be a big freeze but temperatures will remain stable.
The cold snap should last until Thursday when rainfall should mean the snow will be washed away.
However, Rivera said by the weekend there would be stormy weather and general rain.
Temperatures should rise by the end of the week.
