Saudi Arabia is facing a severe cold wave from next week
Winter has begun in Saudi Arabia. Especially during the last two weeks, the temperature has come down due to rains. The Meteorological Department has warned that a severe cold wave is coming in the country from next week due to which the mercury will reach minus 2 degrees in many cities. ۔ Extreme cold winds will blow, while snow will fall in many areas.
According to the Meteorological Department, the cold wave will cover northern Hudood, Al-Jawf region, Hail, Qasim and eastern regions while some areas of northern regions will be affected. The wave will also affect Riyadh region and northern regions. The mercury is likely to reach minus 5 degrees. It is being speculated that this time the cold in Saudi Arabia could be several years old.
Residents of the cold regions of Saudi Arabia have been instructed to take off their warm clothes to avoid the cold. There may be more rain in the next few days. The Department of Civil Defense has asked locals and migrants to avoid heading to valleys and low-lying areas during the rains and not to go for any picnic. This is because water accumulation in low-lying areas can cause severe problems for drivers.
In particular, vehicle wipers should be checked before traveling as it is very difficult to drive when the wiper is damaged in case of rain and the chances of accidents increase. All drivers should not exceed the speed limit and it is best to stay away from flood prone areas. Because in the past, many tourists and drivers have lost their lives in the valleys during the rains.
