Today’s Image of the Day from the European Space Agency shows snowfall lingering across Spain days after Storm Filomena dumped 20 inches of snow in the capital city of Madrid. 

The storm brought the heaviest snowfall the country has had in five decades, and the hazardous conditions have persisted.

In central Spain, record low temperatures have transformed the snow into ice, causing even more issues.  

The image was captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-3 satellite on January 12, 2021.
