As the temperatures drop every year, the mountainous region of North Western Saudi Arabia, particularly the region of Tabuk and Jabal al-Lawz, receive a burst of snowfall.

While the snow melts away within a couple of days and does not last long, this unusual phenomena is nonetheless eagerly awaited by the locals who fondly refer it to it as the ‘the white guest.’

This year, the snowfall is expected to continue until Saturday morning. In addition to Tabuk and Jabal al-Lawz, surrounding districts of Arar, Jalamid and Turaif are also expected to receive spurts of fresh snowfall.
