The squall Barra has settled in the north of Spain where around 850 kilometers 58 roads and ports are affected by the snowstorm. The most affected regions are Aragón, Asturias, Navarra and Castilla y León, where there are completely impassable land roads, although nine other autonomous communities have some affected roads.
The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) has called for drivers to exercise caution and even to advance your travels because the storm has occurred during a five day bridge nationwide, as Monday and Wednesday are holidays, in which national road travel is massive.
In addition, the State Meteorological Agency (EMET) forecast for this Wednesday generalized showers with occasional storms in Galicia, the rest of the Cantabrian area and the Pyrenees and that will lead to precipitation in the form of snow in different points.
Meanwhile, during this day, the cold front will move towards the southeastern half of the country and will reach the Balearic Islands, although progressively weakening. Furthermore, temperatures will continue to drop across the board, especially in the northwest.
