In Video and photos: Only in Lebanon .. “You can ski and go to beach at same time”

In a rare scene that is applied only in Lebanon, Byblos beach was covered with snow, confirming the famous Lebanese sentence: “You can ski and go to the beach at the same time.”

Lebanon is still under the influence of a highly effective trough in terms of snow and the amount of precipitation.

In this context, Father Elie Khneisser, a specialist in meteorology and climatology, appealed to the citizens and called upon them to pay close attention to what the next 24 hours will bring regarding the intensification of the snow storm, an additional drop in temperatures and intense snowfall eill last until Thursday evening

Khneisser stated that the snow will touch 500 meters tonight, or even less in some places due to the high humidity and the lack of wind speed, noting that areas above 800 meters will be cut off by snow, and visibility will be non-existent at the height of 1000 metres.

He said, “What happened in Istanbul will happen in Lebanon, and the 24 hours will be dangerous.”
