More snowfall is expected in the Pyrenees, Cantabrian mountain ranges and interior Spain, while light rain is forecast for Gran Canaria and Tenerife. “Abundant” rains are expected in southern Galicia, Castile and Leon, Madrid, Castile-La Mancha and much of Andalusia, where some localized thunderstorms are not excluded.
