Videos show snow covering the desert in Saudi Arabia


Fluffy white snow blanketing the desert sands of Saudi Arabia … it seems unreal, but the spectacular phenomenon is not so uncommon. On January 1, snow fell in northwestern Saudi Arabia in the town of Jebel al Lawz in Tabuk province. Some people rushed to the area, taking amazing videos of the scene.

One of the videos shows a man dipping his hand into what appears to be sand. But under a thin layer of orange sand is a thick bed of snow. The result of desert sands covering the snow reminded some internet users of a familiar Italian dessert: tiramisu.

Many curious people flocked to the area to see the snow. Some men sang traditional songs in honor of the first snowfall, which usually occurs later in the year.

Annual snowfall has been heavier since 2018. The National Meteorological Center warned the Saudis of severe thunderstorms in several parts of the kingdom earlier this week.
