The deserts of Tabuk, Saudi Arabia is seeing a rare phenomenon of odd-ish proportions as the usually dry deserts have been covered with a blanket of snow due to a cold snap.
Many Saudi residents took to their social media pages to showcase and show off the rare occurrence.

He wrote, “Currently, snow in Saubi Arabia desserts, Tabuk.”
The snow definitely is a welcome change for family activities that they don’t get to do very often, such as snowball fights, going sledding and building snowmen.
That said, it is also worrying to think of the lower-income groups that live in tents across the desert, and how they’re coping with the freezing temperatures with just a bonfire.
It is still unknown as to how long the snowy weather will last for, but it certainly looks magical. We just hope no one is suffering too much from the frosty temperatures.
Dr Ahamd Nabeel’s posting has since garnered over 1,700 retweets.
