A cold front will hit the north of Spain on Friday bringing fierce winds, snow and high seas.

Spain's state meteorological agency, AEMET, issued a severe weather warning that will affect much of the country.

Gusts of over 100 km/h are predicted in the Pyrenees.

The northerly wind will bring snow to northern Spain on Friday 13th hitting areas over 300m above sea level before steadily moving south across the peninsula.

"It is very likely that there will be significant snowfalls in the Cantabrian Mountains and in the Pyrenees, with large accumulations," said AEMET.

Waves of up to six meters are predicted in the Bay of Biscay and along Spain's Atlantic northern coast before the cold front moves southeast to the Mediterreanean coast and Balearic islands.

The wet and windy weather is expected to last until Monday with another cold front predicted to hit Spain on Tuesday when temperatures will plummet further although AEMET said it will be “cold and dry”.
