meteogram climate comparison shows the expected weather compared to the weather of the 35 years (since 1984). This will show you how "normal" or how "extreme" the current weather is:
The maximum temperatures of the current days are somewhat colder for Madrid, but the minimum temperatures are a bit warmer. The current weather in Madrid seems to be rather normal for this season.
The maximum temperatures for Paris are much colder than normal, as are the minimum temperatures. The maxima of 27.02. was the lowest of the last 35 years. Most recently, it was comparably cold in the years 1986, 1987 and 2004, 2005.
