Fresh snow complicating traffic around Czechia

Fresh snow is complicating traffic around Czechia on Tuesday, especially in the west and north-west parts of the country.

Although maintenance crews have been working around the clock there may be snow drifts and ice on less frequented roads. A number of train lines were also halted as a result of fallen trees and some 30,000 households were without power in the morning as a result of the heavy snowfall.

The mountain regions saw some 15 centimetres fall during the night and more snow is expected during the day. Weather experts have also warned against icy conditions caused by a sudden rise in temperatures, expected later on Tuesday.
