Snowfall in the mountains near Ronda early on Tuesday morning confirmed that winter isn't over yet, even in the south of Spain.

The Junta de Andalucía had to activate its winter road management plan to clear the stretch of the A-397 that links Ronda and San Pedro, improving safety for the few vehicles still out on the roads after the lockdown due to the coronavirus crisis.

Precipitation also fell in the form of snow in that area as well as at levels above an altitude of 1,200 metres in the Sierra de las Nieves and the Sierra Bermeja.

The Hidrosur water agency's rain meter in Los Reales showed eight millimetres of precipitation.
