DISCUSSION: While snowfall is nonexistent over in the United States, across the pond an area of low pressure moving across Italy brought some snow to the higher elevations of Southwestern Germany and into neighboring France as well. Forecasters say that this is the first snowfall of the season for these areas which includes the Black Forest mountainous region across Southern Germany. The snow was coming down at a fast-enough pace to coat the roadways, as seen on video posted by Meteo Europe. However, only light snowfall accumulations were expected as the storm system continues to slide to the East. Another storm will dive down South on Thursday and bring with it another chance of snow for the same areas seeing the white stuff today.
As always motorists are urged to drive with extra caution when traveling through snow covered areas. It is highly recommended to equip your vehicle with winter tires to ensure you get the maximum amount of traction when driving this winter. As always stay safe this winter and keep it tuned here for the latest weather events unfolding across the country.
