Two Swiss towns set new records.
The Swiss meteorological agency said Saturday that the town of Montana, in the southern canton (state) of Valais, experienced 25 centimeters (almost 10 inches) of snowfall — a new record for this time of year.
In parts of Austria, snowfall was recorded as low as 550 meters (1,805 feet) above sea level.
Areas 1800+ altitude have seen 50-60cm (2 ft) which is unusual for this time of year!
