When you think of snowy, European towns, Rome usually doesn't come to mind. However, it was a winter wonderland on February 26th. An impromptu snowball fight broke out in St. Peter's Square as people celebrated their rare snow day. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/968114674607693825 The holy city saw its first snowfall since 2012 with much of Europe seeing record cold too. Many people woke up to several inches on the ground Monday morning across the city. This uncharacteristic winter day was all from a blast of cold air that originated from Siberia. The tabloids have nicknamed this arctic front, "The Beast from the East." https://twitter.com/MyFavePlaces/status/968184781157666818 The Romans may have to suffer through temperatures well below average throughout this week but they also get to remember the day it snowed in Rome.   For WeatherNation, Meteorologist Kate Mantych
