Over the weekend, the GCC has been subjected to some unexpectedly cooler weather which has left our feeds inundated with images of incredulous images and videos.

Whilst the UAE suffered from one the heaviest bouts of rainfall and thunder of the season, resulting in flooded streets, cancelled flights and poor visibility, it seems that the weather in Saudi Arabia may just have won the winter climate game. 

The Kingdom was subjected to a full coat of snow this weekend which turned the Arab nation's northwestern border against Jordan into a real-life winter wonderland. 

As expected, the Saudi snowfall went viral in no time with people across the Kindom and in neighboring countries clamouring to share and view images and pictures of this magical winter phenomenon that is so rare in the Arabian desert. 

Saudi Prince, Abdulaziz bin Turki al-Faisal shared the snow covered landscape of NEOM with his beloved followers on his official Twitter account…

And an unbelievable video that showed the snow flakes falling through the mountains of NEOM, and we can think of only one way to describe it: B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L.

This is not the first time that snows in Saudi, as the Kingdom experienced some spring snowfall in April last year that took everyone by surprise.

Will this become a regular winter phenomenon in Saudi Arabia? We will just have to wait and see!
