Snowfall surprises UAE

Dubai: People in the United Arab Emirates on Friday woke up to see the desert country's first ever snow when they found the mountains in the Ras Al Khaimah emirate blanketed with ice. For the past three days the country has been experiencing above average rains and unusual cold spell that led many to believe that the much feared climate change is here to stay. What surprised the residents was Thursday night's snow on the mountain cluster 1,737 metres above sea level with temperatures dropping to as low as minus 5 Celsius. The Meteorological Department at Ras Al Khaimah International Airport said the past days had seen heavy rains and winds of up to 32 knots.
