KNMI has issued a weather code yellow for Wednesday for all of the Netherlands except the Wadden region. Rijkswaterstaat reports that motorists should take into account possible slippery conditions due to residual snow and freezing of wet road sections on Tuesday and Wednesday evening.

In many Western European countries, weather conditions are more extreme. For example, the German Meteorological Service expects heavy snowfall in several areas, including the cities of Bonn and Aachen. The purple code, the highest weather code, applies to at least two regions. The service warns of snow, icy rain, and blocked roads and trails. Severe icy conditions can also occur. Mainz expects up to 30 cm of snow.

France: floods

In France, North Orleans and Dijon, Code Orange applies. The French Meteorological Service warns not only of snow and ice, but also of floods. A “period of freezing rain, followed by snow” is expected.

Snow is also falling in Flanders, although much less than expected. According to the Belgian weather service RMI, between 1 and 5 cm of snow will fall locally. Code orange applies in Wallonia on Wednesday. Up to 30 cm of snow may fall locally there.

Most of the snow will fall in the UK on Tuesday. More than a hundred schools in Scotland have closed, the BBC reported. Less snow is expected on Wednesday, but code yellow remains in effect in large parts of the country.
