Cold snap: Europe experiences extreme weather as Roman fountains freeze over
A wave of wintry weather has been sweeping across a host of cities in Europe, leading to frozen fountains in Rome and heavy snowfall in cities such as Istanbul, Berlin, and Moscow.
Cities in north America also saw the seasonal change, with New York City experiencing its first proper snow day of 2017. Some locals and tourists took to parks across the city to ski and toboggan through the inches of fresh snowfall brought in by winter storm Helena.
The cold weather is expected to continue across Europe and America, with meteorologists predicting that the freezing temperatures will pass over the UK and Ireland within the next few weeks.
