Snow Covering Central and Eastern France

45.7N 2.9E

January 1st, 2011 Category: Mountains

France - December 26th, 2010

Snow blankets much of central and eastern France in this image taken during the late December blizzards that affected much of Europe. Here, it covers the Massif Central, and in the full image can be seen extending eastward to Switzerland and northern Italy.

Snow can also be seen atop the Pyrenees (bottom) and the Alps (right side of full image), as one might expect. The land near the coast, however, remains clear. This is true on the western coast, by the Gironde Estuary and cities such as Bordeaux and Nantes, and along the southern coast, by cities such as Marseilles.
