A big winter storm will spread a deep blanket of snow across central and eastern Europe to central Russia between Wednesday and Saturday.
Snowfall of 1-2 feet (about 30-60 cm) could bring travel to a halt, especially from Slovakia and southeastern Poland to Belarus, northwestern Ukraine and central Russia, including greater Moscow.
Disruptive falls of snow, potentially up to 8 inches (20 cm), will also cover such central Europe capitals as Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest.
The snow will get underway Wednesday night and early Thursday in the eastern Alps and hills above the eastern Adriatic Sea. From here, it will quickly spread over Hungary, Slovakia, eastern Austria and southern Poland.
Thursday night and Friday, the worst of the storm's heavy, windswept snow will spread northeastward in a swathe from southern and eastern Poland across Belarus and northwestern Ukraine to the heart of Russia. At this time, snow could fall at 1 to 2 inches, shutting roads to travel.
