A strong winter cyclone will press southward from near Iceland, across the the United Kingdom Sunday and Sunday night.
The storm will bring just enough cold air with it to lead to some moderate snowfall across the Midlands of England with rain mixing with some snow in and around London.
For London itself, any accumulations will be Sunday night where there can be a slushy coating to an inch (2.5 cm). Across the Midlands snowfall can accumulate 2-4 inches (5-10 cm) with local amounts of 6 inches (15 cm), making travel slow and dangerous.
This same storm will be responsible for some rain and snow around Paris Sunday into Sunday night with any accumulations being held to a slushy inch (2.5 cm) or less.
The biggest impacts from this storm could be felt across southern Europe where the storm intensifies and drops heavy snow in the Alps and across northern Italy.
Right in the middle of this storm will be Milan, the second largest city in Italy. Snow is expected to begin Monday morning with the heaviest snowfall expected Monday afternoon into Monday night. In all, upwards of a foot of snow will be possible in and around the city, making this the biggest snowstorm to affect the city in years.
