The Monaco Government has issued an alert for an episode of seriously cold weather, accompanied by snow, overnight on Tuesday, February 27 and into Wednesday, February 28. Meanwhile, the neighbouring region of France has been placed on Orange Alert by Météo France due to the very low temperatures. Residents are advised to take care in public places, due to the risk of ice, and to wrap up warm.

Unsurprising to residents who woke up to snow covered trees, the temperature is set to drop below freezing in the Principality again Tuesday night, and the high on Wednesday is forecast to be only 5°C. (The morning low on Tuesday was -1°C).

Daytime temperatures are not due to return to near normal until Friday, with a high of 13°C. The cold spell will relent from Tuesday, March 6, with an overnight low of 8°C and a daytime high of 15°C.

The cold snap – “the Beast from the East” – has hit travel throughout much of Europe, including the UK, where snow in the southeast has resulted in many flights being cancelled from Heathrow and Gatwick.

On Tuesday, February 27, most of the axed flights from Heathrow were to Germany and Scandinavia, with flights to France operating normally. More snow is expected in the UK on Wednesday and Thursday, and this is likely to cause more disruption than has occurred so far this week.

In addition to snow and rain Wednesday, strong winds of up to 60 km/h are expected, which could disrupt Nice-Côte d’Azur airport, train and bus services.
