Snow fell on Kuwait on Thursday (28-JAN-2016) morning for the primary time within the country's history. Snow flakes falling within the Gulf state, wherever temperatures have plummeted in recent days.
Temperatures in Kuwait go up to 50C within the summer months mostly in May, June & July and even in winter 20C is that the norm. However, on Thursday the temperature was as low as 3C.
There is no record of snow having fallen in Kuwait before, though the emirate has experienced hail and frost within the past once temperatures have fallen within the winter.
While snow is remarkable in Kuwait, in near Saudi Arabia the north of the country often sees downfall.
In the town of Rafha (Saudia Arabia) on Thursday temperatures fell to -2C. Photos.
