Snowfall turns Athens into winter wonderland

It's a winter wonderland in a rather unexpected location today- Athens has been hit by a snowstorm and much of northern Greece is struggling to deal with snow and subzero temperatures.

From the Acropolis to the Parthenon, a dusting of white, and even more snow is in the forecast.

Some flights have been delayed, trains cancelled and school is cancelled in the worst-hit areas. Temperatures have dipped to -18 in some places, and another cold front is on the way.
