A major snowstorm is expected to develop across central and eastern Europe during the middle of the week, bringing heavy snow from the Alps to western Russia.
Cold, stormy conditions have been a major feature across Europe recently, with cold air invading the British Isles and northern France, bringing up to a foot of snow across parts of that region.
On Wednesday, a storm moving over Italy will pull warm, moist Mediterranean air northward into the abnormally cold air over the continent. The result will be the beginning of a snowstorm. The first significant snow will begin across the Swiss and Italian Alps. Most of the ski resorts across the region should get ample amounts of fresh snow, with a widespread 4-8 inches (10-20 cm) of snow. Widespread travel delays should be expected in the region, with most passes being difficult to travel, if they remain open.
