As part of our summer road-trip season we have researched some of the best trips you can do by car. Here’s our guide to one of Europe’s ultimate road-trips: the ‘Grand Tour’, featuring France, Switzerland and Italy. This trip takes in picture-postcard French villages, snow-covered alpine mountains and the glitz and glamour of Monaco and Milan!

According to three separate national snow cover maps, snow is on the ground in at least 48 of 50 U.S. states.

According to three separate national snow cover maps, snow is on the ground in at least 48 of 50 U.S. states.

As of mid-November, snow cover in the lower 48 states has reached an all-time low, according to NOAA's National Operational Hydrologic Remote Sensing Center's National Snow Analysis. As shown in these maps, just a fraction of the land area of the contiguous U.S. had snow on the ground on the morning of November 14, 2016. http://www.nnvl.noaa.gov/MediaDetail2.php?MediaID=1957&MediaTypeID=1

One year after being pelted with widespread and abundant snowfall, much of North America stayed brown, gray, and green in the winter of 2011–12. Multiple weather patterns conspired to keep snow from forming and falling often, and warm air temperatures kept it from staying on the ground for long. This mostly snow-deprived winter should mean fewer spring floods, but also less snow melt filling reservoirs and lake.
