Apparently it's been snowing - strange weather for the place at this time of year! Check out the photo.

According to a story in the Saudi Gazette and sourced to the American News Agency, the Associated Press, snow fell in Al-Baha city, to the south-west of Riyadh, on Tuesday.

Torrential rain poured down on Al-Baha accompanied by gusty winds.

The nearby mountains received some snow too.

It covered the valley areas and the forests of Al-Zaraeb and Khayrah, according to the report.












It doesn't look like they were prepared for the white stuff and on closer examination it could even be hailstones, but it's certainly an interesting picture and they look like they are enjoying themselves anyway.

It does though snow in Saudi Arabia - just not always at this time of year.  See the You Tube video below of some snow in
