Bad weather conditions have prompted the closure of the Eiffel Tower to the public in Paris, which is bracing for more snow on Wednesday amid the ongoing transport havoc.
Meteorologists have warned that temperatures could plummet to minus ten degrees Celsius (fourteen degrees Fahrenheit) in the next few days, which may see the snowfall accumulation in Paris reaching more than 10 centimeters (around four inches).
An orange alert has been announced in a total of 28 departments across France, including eight in the Paris region, due to bad weather.

Traffic is at a standstill this evening on the A10 near #Ulis the SW side of the #Paris Metro. If traffic doesn't get moving soon, will create nightmare scenario with cars stuck in snow… #neige pic.twitter.com/639M2tOAZu— Tyler B. Roys (@Tylertheweather) 6 февраля 2018 г.
My backyard in Bussy Saint Georges 😍It was my first time seeing snow this year in 16 years… Glad I came to Paris this semester because apparently it's been awhile for Paris, too. https://t.co/YE0Y15C652 pic.twitter.com/Ra9RxtVcon— Alina Wong (@ahleenahhope) 7 февраля 2018 г.
Snowy morning in Paris. The city is so different. The sound of happy kids is louder than the few cars passing by the streets. Snow is fun! At least the first day… pic.twitter.com/MfsCO1Inmt— Fabien Ferrage (@fabferrage) 7 февраля 2018 г.
