Czech Republic hit by heavy snowfalls

The Czech Republic has been hit by heavy snowfalls that are expected to continue until Thursday. Forecasters say that up to 50 centimetres of snow could fall in mountainous areas, while low-lying areas could get around 7 centimetres. Snowdrifts may form and ice is expected on roads in some parts of the country on Wednesday night. Czech Radio reported that only one lane on the country’s biggest motorway, the D1, was open in the Vysočina region.
