Parts of the Alps in Austria and Italy have been blanketed in a layer of fresh snow locally 10-15 cm thick.

The first impressions come from Rifugio Torino in the Mt Blanc massif, extreme NW Italy (Alps), yesterday, July 26.

Thick fresh snow was also reported at the Dachsteingetscher, Austria (~2700 m) this morning, July 27.
