Cold Outbreak Sets Up Western Europe for More Snow

A wintry cold blast that has already triggered snow in a wide area of Europe will spark outbreaks of heavy snow in the west by midweek.

Much of France will be subject to snow, as will areas as far-flung of northern Spain and eastern Great Britain, between Tuesday and Thursday. Up to 6 inches of snow will blanket Paris by Thursday, for instance.

Locally, snow will fall heavily, bringing disruption to air and ground traffic.

Recent days have had up to a foot of new snow from eastern Scotland to northeastern England, owing mostly to an abnormally cold, damp wind flow off the North Sea.

On Monday, new snowfall of 10 inches mantled Poprad, Slovakia, as a wintry storm tracked across central Europe into eastern Europe.
