    London and Paris Expecting More Snowfall

    A massive winter storm currently blasting Spain and France with locally heavy rainfall and mountain snow is poised to become more wintry as the storm splits and part of the storm lifts northward Sunday.

    As the storm lifts northward, moisture associated with it will interact with a colder air mass over France and the United Kingdom.

    A fresh snow already fell in and around Paris Friday night resulting in a couple of inches. This is just the precursor to another round of snowfall that will bring totals of 3 to as much as 6 inches (7.5-15cm) of snow to the capital city and surrounding areas through the day on Sunday.

    Snow will be here to stay in Paris as cold air remains in the wake of this next storm system, and additional snow will be possible Monday and Monday night, although no significant accumulations are expected during this time.


    Further north, London and much of the United Kingdom got a taste of winter as well with several inches of snow falling in the past 48 hours.

    More snow is also expected across central and eastern England as same storm system tracks northward Sunday into Sunday night. Snowfall will be heaviest just inland from the east coast of England where there could be local amounts up to 3 or 4 inches (7.5-10cm) with an inch or two (2.5-5.0) closer to London and points west of the city.

    Little relief from the recent wintry weather is expected in England on Monday as yet another low pressure system is poised to pass just to the south and east which could result in yet another chance for snowfall in the Southeast, perhaps as as far north and west as London.
