SNOW has fallen over the United Arab Emirates for the first time ever, leaving a white blanket over the mountains of Ras al-Khaimah as the desert country experienced a cold spell and above-average rainfall.

The snow fell over the Al-Jees mountain range in Ras al-Khaimah, the most northerly member of the UAE federation, Dubai airport's meteorology department reported.

The English-language Gulf News reported that the mountain cluster at 1737m above sea level "had heavy night-time snowfall for the past two days as a result of temperatures dropping to as low as minus five Celsius" and stunning the emirate's residents.


More unusual weather. I wonder if this was related to the earths wobble after the Asian quake?

I just saw something about a tornado in LA, now I hear this about snow in the UAE. I think we're seeing a large number of very unusual occurences in the weather, all happening in a brief amount of time. The sun is getting darker (or at least transmitting reduced radiation to the earth's surface) and that is probably the primary cause of this snow. That's my guess anyway.
