Northern Italy has received much snowfall over the last week.

The Alps, to the North, are snow capped, as are the Apennines, running southward.

The lowlands between the two mountain ranges are also covered by snow, with the River Po running between them.

In the first image detail, cities such asĀ  Turin, Milan, Parma, Modena and Bologna can be seen as dark grey circles amidst the snow.

The second image detail gives a closer look at the white peaks of the Alps.

Here, we have a clear view of Italy at the beginning of the second week in October. In the north, we can see fog covering the Padana Plains (Pianura Padana) from West to East, around the River Po and near cities including Turin, Milan and Ferrara. Further south, we can also observe a meteorological disturbance off the northeastern coast of Sardinia in the Tyrrhenian Sea, obscuring Olbia and other cities.
