The expert also expected temperatures to drop in these countries for several days and to be accompanied by winds and torrential rains.
He also indicated the possibility that the impact of the giant depression would extend to Saudi Arabia and some Gulf countries, expecting its effects to appear at a temperature between 4 to 6 degrees, in addition to winds that cause dust, snow and rain, some of them snowy, over areas of Al-Jawf and Tabuk.
In this context, it is noteworthy that the eastern regions of Libya have been exposed for several days to a Siberian air depression, where areas of the Green Mountain witnessed snowfall accompanied by a significant decrease in temperatures.
