Just days before Halloween, the first snowfall has already touched down in France late Friday night and early this morning.

The first flakes of snow were seen this morning in Alsace and Vosges, in the north-eastern part of the country. According to Metéo-France, snowfall is also expected this weekend in the southern Mediterranean island of Corsica, in the eastern region of Jura, Massif Central, and in the northern Alps.

Already, a warning has been issued to drivers in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence region to be cautious when driving in such snowy conditions.
