An early snow cover has closed the Troyan mountain pass in Stara Planina in central Bulgaria for tractor trailers weighting over 3.5 tones.

The information was reported Thursday by the police directorate in the second largest city of Plovdiv.

Tractor trailers are banned from the road because snow removal machines are cleaning it.

Meanwhile, nearly the entire country has been under a Code Yellow weather alert Thursday over downpours and strong winds.

Code yellow means potentially dangerous weather, where the forecast is not for unusual meteorological events, but requires people to exercise caution.
