Heavy to moderate rain, followed by heavy cold showers, fell on several governorates and centres in the Asir region, southwest of Saudi Arabia, and rains continued in a number of cities and governorates in the region.
This cold wave included the city of Abha, the governorates of KhamisMushait, AhadRafidah, Tanuma, Al-Namas, the centres of Al-Souda, Tabab, and Balahmar, Baihan, Balsammar, Al Athab and Al Maween.
The wet weather and the cold-clad mountains prevented locals and tourists from enjoying the region’s pouring waterfalls and hail debris on the roadside, as captured by photographer Faia Al-Lami, who filmed the aesthetics of the white over the Asir Mountains and highways.
The General Meteorological Agency reported that strong weather disruptions have hit large parts of Saudi Arabia as a result of the region’s strong and widespread state of air instability.
Several regions of Saudi Arabia experienced a heavy storm, including the heights of Jazan, Asir, Al-Baha, and Taif, as well as parts of the Hail and Qassim regions, and these clouds actively agreed to the downward winds that may develop as a result of dust waves in some areas.
