Saudi Arabia’s Hail, located in the Kingdom’s north-western region, has been seeing unusual weather this month with bouts of heavy rain, snow, and thunderstorms.
Videos circulating on social media showed thick dark clouds enveloping the sky and blocks of snow on the ground.
In one video, camels were seen running through the snow-covered desert as it rained.
