Snow covers Saudi Arabia’s Tabuk region


Snow blanketed parts of Saudi Arabia’s north-western city of Tabuk on New Year’s Day, footage shared online showed.

The extreme weather led the security forces to close the road leading to the area after thousands of residents and visitors arrived to enjoy the sight, reports said.

More snow is expected to fall on Jebel Al Lawz as well as the mountain areas of Al Dhahr and Alqan early on Sunday, with temperatures expected to drop below 0°C.

Saudi Arabia’s Civil Defence urged visitors and residents of Tabuk to be vigilant amid low visibility and the possibility of heavy rainfall and thunder expected to last until Monday.

Jebel Al Lawz is a mountain in the north-west of Saudi Arabia near the Jordanian border in the Tabuk province, about 200 kilometres north-west of the city of Tabuk.
