Code red for Sofia
A Code Red weather warning is in place for Sofia - and indeed for the whole of Bulgaria - issued by the Regional Development Minister Liliana Pavlova on January 26 2012.
The warning, including a road ban for all vehicles of more than 10 tons, came as the heavy snowfall continued, with snow lying two metres deep in places.
Sofia Airport was closed for part of Thursday. So far it is operating OK today, though many arrivals and departures are slightly delayed.
Temperatures are forecast to drop further in the next few days.
