TABUK: Areas around the city of Haql witnessed rainfall accompanied by light snow on Friday evening on Al-Lawz Mountain, while light snow, known as the “white guest,” fell in Tabuk in the evening and disappeared at dawn.
The local population gathers every year to watch this phenomenon. They arrive at the mountain early to welcome the snow and consider this time to be the most beautiful in the year.
Snow usually falls during the night and continues until the early morning hours; then it gradually disappears leaving some areas of Jabal Al-Lawz covered with snow.
Security forces, traffic police, civil defense, and the Red Crescent were present in the area and the roads leading to Jabal Al-Lawz to organize traffic.
