Severe snowstorm to strike Turkey
Weather experts are predicting that Istanbul and the region will be hit by a snowstorm, which is expected to bring further disruptions to the daily activities of Istanbulites.
Heavy snowfall mixed with rain is expected to turn into a blizzard at times, according to Turkish State Meteorological Service.
The weather temperatures are not expected to change, remaining at the range of 6 to 8 degrees Celsius. However, the effects of the expected blizzard are likely to be increased by wind speeds ranging from 40 to 100 km/h coming from the north-west, turning it into a storm, weather experts warned.
