On Saturday, a northeastern storm with considerable snowfall is forecast on the eastern and northern coast and even stormier conditions in the highlands, visir.is reports.

The road conditions can therefore become difficult within a short time span and in many parts of the country traveling will not be advised.

On Sunday the storm is expected to subside and by Sunday afternoon the weather is likely to have calmed in most regions.

Follow the weather forecast on the website of the Meteorological Office.
