A code red warning has been issued for Friday in two municipalities in the south of Bulgaria, the national meteorology institute has announced.

In the regions of Smolyan and Kardzhali, snowfall of up to 70 l/sqm is expected, according to the National Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology at the Bulgarian Academy of Science.

A code orange warning is to be in force in four other municipalities (Pazardzhik, Plovdiv, Stara Zagora and Haskovo) over heavy snow and strong winds.

This means most of Southern Bulgaria could be covered in snow on Friday, with the exception of areas near the Black Sea.

A yellow code has been declared for most of the western and northwestern areas of the country.

The warnings come amid a new cold spell that followed days of spring-like weather conditions.
