Southern Italy is experiencing unusually wintry weather. In Rome, arctic-inspired winds brought temperatures as low as minus eight degrees Celsius. For the first time in almost 20 years, cities such as Palermo woke up under a white blanket. It even reached as far as Sardinia.
Experts estimate that the cold will continue until the New Year, and snow is expected even in coastal areas. Due to the intense snowfall in many parts of the country, the use of snow chains has become necessary in many places.
Reportedly, dozens of cars are trapped for the last 2.5 hours near the tunnel of Artemisium, in the direction towards Tripoli, due to the snow.
