Record December Snow in Munich


The Washington Post reported:

In Munich, Germany’s third-largest city, a storm over the weekend dropped nearly a foot and a half of snow, setting a December record. It was also the city’s largest snowstorm since early March 2006 and among the biggest of any month on record.

Euronews reported airport disruption and flight cancelations due to the snow:

Heavy snowfall and sleet caused days of disruption at Germany’s second busiest airport. Germany’s second busiest hub has been hit by days of heavy snowfall and freezing rain, leading to disruption for thousands of passengers.

Of the 771 flights scheduled last Tuesday, more than 80 per cent were cancelled and almost all of the rest were delayed, according to Flightradar24.
