Coldest Christmas in 120 years
6 Jan 2019 – Heavy snowfalls across Europe — Germany, Austria, even in Greece — have thrown travel plans into chaos, trapping hundreds in alpine regions and airports, and leaving snow on Italian beaches.
As the record-breaking snowfalls engulfed much of central Europe, bringing the Continent the coldest Christmas in 120 years, a rare sight was seen: snow on Greek and Italian beaches.
Significant snowfall is forecast for southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland in coming days.
