Snow falls in Tabuk at night, vanishes at sunrise

TABUK: Areas around the city of Haql witnessed rainfall accompanied by light snow on Friday evening on Al-Lawz Mountain, while light snow, known as the “white guest,” fell in Tabuk in the evening and disappeared at dawn.
The local population gathers every year to watch this phenomenon. They arrive at the mountain early to welcome the snow and consider this time to be the most beautiful in the year.
Snow usually falls during the night and continues until the early morning hours; then it gradually disappears leaving some areas of Jabal Al-Lawz covered with snow.
Security forces, traffic police, civil defense, and the Red Crescent were present in the area and the roads leading to Jabal Al-Lawz to organize traffic.

Faces of Saudi: Dr. Basmah Al-Rowaily

Many choose to become doctors from a very young age, however, this was not the case for me. During high school I excelled academically, which led my father to pressure me into choosing to pursue medicine. I studied to become a family physician, later focusing on regenerative medicine and anti-ageing medicine, including aesthetics — all of which have aided me in providing a holistic and personalized approach for my patients. Not only do I believe in such medicinal practices as a means toward achieving better health, I also believe in the natural healing power of the universe.
