For the 1st time in 100+ years it is snowing in Egypt and other parts of the middle east (yes we said it, SNOW) #StreetIntell #WorldNews

A light dusting once or twice isn’t unusual for the area but according to the weather channel  since Friday this rare winter storm has produced a remarkable amount of precipitation down in the lower elevations. This is attributed to a slow moving upper level low pressure system that is wrapping moisture into the air. The system is just cold enough to bring out heavy snow over parts of Israel, Jordan, Syria and Egypt. Quite unusual for the sandy and dry  climate especially since they often receive little to no rainfall in the  region.
