PHOTOS and VIDEOS: THEY CALL IT HAIL SNOW IN SAUDI ARABIA, THE STORM OF TINY ICE

An extreme cold weather has blanketed most parts of Saudi Arabia with six regions — Tabuk, Northern Borders, Al-Jouf, Hail, Qassim and Eastern Province – experiencing sub-zero temperatures, according to the January 10 report of Saudi Gazette.
Rainfall is also expected in many parts of the country by the middle of the week. Meteorologists said the temperature would continue to drop in coming weeks. Riyadh and parts of Qassim are likely to experience record low temperatures in the next few days. The drop in temperatures began with the start of the new year. Madinah recorded the lowest temperature in western Saudi Arabia.
Remember the brief snow last year (2015) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia?

“The cold weather will continue in all parts of the Kingdom, especially its northern and western parts. It will be accompanied by surface winds with a strength of 50 km per hour, especially in the Northern Border Province, Al-Jouf, Tabuk, Hail, Madinah and Makkah,” said Hussein Al-Qahtani, spokesman of the Presidency of Meteorology and Environment.
Strong cold winds are also expected in Riyadh, Qassim and the Eastern Province, including Hafr Al-Batin, Al-Qahtani said, adding that the sky would be partly cloudy to cloudy with the possibility of light rainfall in the northern and eastern regions.
He also expected snowfall in the northern regions, especially its northwestern parts of the country including Turaif, Qurayyat, Arar and the highlights of Tabuk. “We also expect rains in the Kingdom’s southern regions,” Al-Qahtani said.
The spokesman pointed out that thunderous rainy clouds could appear over Asir, Jazan and Baha regions, extending to the southern part of the Makkah region. Fog is likely to form in the northern regions as well as southwestern and western highlands during night and early morning hours.

Can you believe this! A friend of the family sent this today to my wife. This was taken on the way from Makkah to Madinah...that's right, it snowed in Saudi Arabia. My God, can you imagine being in Ihram around the ka'bah while it snows! May Allah protect us. (Polite reminder: Bdesh appeal. Only 2 days left. 47% raised. justgiving.com/Hasan-Ali4 )
