Bulgaria's national weather service has issued a code yellow warning for snow and high winds on Monday, December 29.

Gusts of wind blowing at up to 25 m/s should be expected across the country, with blizzards and black in all but one (Blagoevgrad) of the 28 districts, the National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology at the Bulgarian Academy of Science (BAS) has reported.

Rain and snowfall are however likely to stop in many parts of Eastern and Northern Bulgaria, while temperatures will remain low.

A sharp decrease in temperatures has been registered throughout Bulgaria over the past few days, following an unusually warm period just before Christmas.

This comes as many Bulgarians have been traveling across or out of the country either to celebrate Christmas or the New Year elsewhere.

Authorities are warning against mountain climbing on Monday due to severe conditions.

Temperatures will go further down in the next few days, with -15°C expected in certain regions in the north-west on New Year's eve.
