Weather turns chilly and snow settles on peaks

After a day of blustery winds, rain and even hail on some parts of the island, the excitement grew over the last 24 hours as temperatures dropped, clouds cleared, to reveal a spectacular image of snow! More snow fall is expected tonight, in the highest regions of the island. Even though Madeira is a sub tropical island that enjoys a constant level of warm temperatures throughout the year, it isn’t unusual for snow to reach the highest peaks, Pico Ruivo and Pico Aeriero respectively. It is however, unusual for Paul de Serra to be covered and this year has been no exception as snow settled in Loretto (Calheta), much lower than normal.
