Parts of Ukraine and Romania were hit by snowfall totaling more than 20 cm (8 inches) on Sunday evening.

As per the weatherman, even more snow storm is likely to bash the region by Monday. However, possibilities of the snow storm ending on Monday is also expected.

The worst snow storm has already hammered areas of Western Ukraine and northern Romania. However, this time, central and eastern Ukraine along with parts of southern Russia are most likely to witness moderate to a few heavy snow spells into Monday morning.

Moreover, snow will abate off by Monday with just some light snow making its appearance over Eastern Ukraine and Southern parts of Russia particularly during the afternoon hours.

However, as per the experts, the hefty and wet snow can also result in number of power outages throughout Ukraine creating travel chaos as well.

Moreover, as there is a possiblity of the storm system firming up, chances are that strong winds will develop across Ukraine. This could even lead to drifting and gusting of snow which could be close to 3 feet deep over some parts.

Possibility of reduced visibility cannot be ruled out as well hence, the motorists are also advised to stay cautious while driving. This could result into road closures, especially in western and northern Ukraine.

However, areas such as Odessa, Dnipro and Luhansk in the southeast Ukraine will be spared from this snow storm but chances of mild air giving little snowfall cannot be ignored as well.

As the temperatures are expected to stay below normal for much of next week, cold air is also likely to remain in place across the region following the storm.
