All regions of Bulgaria are under code yellow Monday over the falling snow, the National Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences informs.

Code yellow means dangerous natural events, but without a threat to the population.

The most significant snow fall is expected in eastern and northern Bulgaria.

All cross-border check points are open for traffic, however, automobiles using the ones at Ilinden and Zlatograd at the Greek border are required to have tire chains.

Police report heavy traffic on the E-79 road to the Kulata cross-border point between Bulgaria and Greece and a number of traffic incidents.

Meanwhile, the Sofia City Hall informed the cleaning contractor companies have treated all roads in the capital used by public transportation vehicles.
