A scene of dessert covered with snow is not something that we see every day, do we? But this is what happened to the central and northwestern regions of the country when the temperature dropped greatly and went below freezing point. The videos and images of snow covering the dessert are going viral.
Such frigid temperature and change in climate is an unexpected treat for Saudi Arabia’s central and north-west regions, which otherwise tends to witness daily high temperatures of around 20-degree Celsius, even in ‘cold’ November, whereas mid-October is generally the rainy season, they are however experiencing light showers this year as well.
Authorities have issued advisories to drivers as they are not used to the snow covered roads. People of Saudi Arabia are more than happy and have made sure to enjoy this rare sight to its fullest. Some Saudi’s have taken it to Twitter to express their thoughts.
