First snowfall complicating traffic around the country

Heavy snowfall on Friday night complicated traffic around the country, including Prague. Firefighters were called to a number of incidents caused mainly by the fact that many cars are still running on summer tires. Meteorologists have issued a heavy snow for Saturday as well, with the mountain regions expecting to see up to 15 centimeters of fresh snow. Drivers have been warned to expect icy roads and not to set out without winter gear.
