DISCUSSION: As a strong low pressure system moved through several areas across central and northern Estonia at the end of last week, many people experienced whiteout conditions across the region. As seen in the video above (courtesy of Kairo Kiitsak before being re-shared by the Meteo Europe team), the heavy falling and blowing snowfall creating near-zero visibility conditions as snow squalls propagated through the region. As one experiences such conditions, it is always imperative to avoid traveling through said regions so as to avoid being impacted by such dangerous winter storm conditions. More specifically, it is important to respect the inherent dangers of traveling through winter storms on the roads or even on foot due to the natural dangers presented by motorists attempting to travel through low-visibility and frigid conditions. Therefore, if and when you are caught in a winter storm with such hazardous conditions, you should always remain on the side of caution to avoid putting yourself in harm's way.
