Weather forecast predicts more snow for Paris on Friday

The winter blast is not over yet with more snow forecast to hit Paris on Friday, meaning the 'City of Light' is likely to keep its white blanket for a few more days to come.


Paris has already been hit by between 12cm and 15cm of snow but the winter blast might not be over yet. 
The Paris region is one of 10 departments in France on orange alert -- the second highest warning -- for snow and ice on Wednesday morning. 
Forecasts for even lower temperatures are likely to freeze the heavy snow in place on Wednesday, making conditions even more treacherous, the Meteo France weather service said.
Temperatures are also set to dip below freezing on Thursday morning in the Paris area.
And forecasts say more snow is expected to hit the capital on Friday, according to national weather agency Meteo France
On Friday light snowfall is predicted to hit Paris between 7am and 1pm, with snow and rain expected to continue throughout the rest of the afternoon.
