Macedonia gets First Snow for 2009

Snow blanketed the mountainous areas in Macedonia on Wednesday, causing traffic disruptions across the country. AMSM reported traffic disruptions on roads and highways in much of the country, especially in the mountainous areas. Rain showers mixed with snowfall slowed down the traffic as well. Heavy snowfall was reported in Straza, Bukovo, Gjavato, Pletvar and Preseka.
Motorists have been advised to take extra precautions while driving on the road from the town of Kriva Palanka to border crossing of Deve Bair, and from Struga to border crossing of Qafasan given the wet roads and fast-melting snow. Hydro-Meteorological Institute says three centimeters of snow blanketed Mavrovo.
