On Monday morning snow is still lying heavy in Riga which is now officially the snowiest capital in Europe. Yes - we are number one!
Riga City Council has announced that in order to encourage people to use public transport instead of bringing their cars in to the city, drivers can travel buses, trams and trolleybuses for free Monday, provided they bring their vehicle registration document with them.
UZMANĪBU! Rīt būs spēkā PUTEŅA BIĻETES! Lūdzu padalieties ar šo ziņu! pic.twitter.com/hH1z0OHM7W— Rīga.lv (@RigasDome) November 6, 2016
Up to 50 snowplows have been working round the clock in the Latvian capital to clear the streets, but in rural districts many roads have yet to be cleared and drivers are advised to drive with extreme caution.
With temperatures set to remain comfortably sub-zero in the earl part of the week and further flurries possible, it looks as if the snow may be here to stay... for a while, at least.
