Video: Snowfall in Saudi Arabia desert?


Hail and heavy rain flood areas of Saudi Arabia.

Heavy rain and hail has flooded some areas in Saudi Arabia's Tabuk.

In a video posted on Instagram, a man is seen stopping his vehicle to record the hail blanketing the road - giving it a snowy look, the cloudy sky and the water flooding on the side of the road.

According to the narration in the video, the video was recorded on Sunday, January 20, 2019.

Tabuk is located in the northern area of Saudi Arabia, which - sometimes - in winter witnesses snow and flooding due to heavy rain.

Netizens were in awe of the beautiful 'snowy' sight.

Additionally, the Saudi news agency announced on Saturday that thunder rains with strong winds are expected to hit northern areas of the Kingdom, which could lead to floods and dusty weather.
