Parts of Spain have been covered by a rare snowfall, causing traffic disruption and canceling flights, as the country records the lowest temperature in its history.

Madrid and other parts of Spain were blanketed in snow on Thursday as the southern European country witnessed record low temperatures due to Storm Filomena, forecasters said.

“If the forecasts are confirmed, we could be facing one of the most extensive snowfalls in recent years,” said Ruben del Campo, spokesman for Spain’s AEMET weather agency.
