Austria could face 10 feet of snow in the next few days as fierce winter weather continues to strike central Europe this week.

Parts of Austria have already had more snow this month than they usually do in the whole of January, with more snow expected before the weekend.

The tourist season in the Alps has also been hit with more than 1,000 miles of ski slope and 450 ski lifts closed because of the weather.

The cold weather has also reached Greece where temperatures reached as low as -9F (-23C) in the city of Florina on Tuesday night.
