The level of snow will oscillate between 1,200 / 1,400 meters in the northwest of the peninsula and will decrease to 1,200 / 1,600 in the rest.
The temperatures will suffer a generalized descent that can get to be remarkable in the peninsular interior, with frosts in the Pyrenees and the Cantabrian mountain range.
Trade winds are expected in the Canary Islands and west in the Strait and Alborán, and northwest wind in Galicia and Cantabrian and southern component in the Balearic Islands and the rest of the Peninsula.
