White surprise in the Alps | Suddenly winter is here – News Abroad


Winter is here – 25cm of fresh snow are bathing the Swiss Alps in wintry white and ensuring that winter services are constantly on duty. So much snow in mid-September, many cars get stuck at over 1500 meters. In Austria and Switzerland, some pass roads are temporarily closed, making progress without winter equipment is hardly possible, as here on the Klausen Pass in Switzerland. According to weather experts, the reason for the early onset of winter should be the cold, damp air from the North Sea, which is currently flowing towards Central Europe and has fallen as snow on the Alps.
