    I'm actually happy for them. The kids in particular must be over the moon to see snow for probably the first time ever. Even though we're not a particularly snowy island, I think we do take it for granted that snow is almost guaranteed every winter (not applicable to everywhere).

    So if it can happen now, and has happened before and snow in Palestine, Syria and Jerusalem, factor in the odd comet then perhaps the snowy christmas nativity scene beloved of christmas card painters might have happened? From a scientific, and agnostic view, if you can have a paper published on climate change impacts in Middle Earth (see The Blackboard for more details) then that should happily employ a few postgrads Of Climathology

    I just hope its not a bad sign for our winter when we see the likes of Egypt getting snow,Israel,Turkey etc that my biggest fear. How many winters during the poor ones of the 90s and 00s did we see the likes of Greece and Turkey getting cold weather and the BI end up getting jack.

    I bet the folks stranded weren't feeling all warm and fuzzy!

    The Home Front Command set up a control center in Latrun overnight Friday, and deployed units to snow-stricken areas. Drivers stranded on Route 1 and Route 443 at the entrance to Jerusalem were being brought to emergency help centers established at the Jerusalem Convention Center, in Mevaseret Zion and at the Ofer military camp.

    Some 2000 stranded motorists in the capital and in the highways leading to the city were rescued by police and IDF and border police forces.

    Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat turned to IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz and Jerusalem District police chief Yossi Pariente for help in evacuating the motorists.

    “We are currently using all means available to save the people stuck in the storm. Only after the weather calms will we be able to open all of the roadways in the city,†Barkat said Friday morning,  adding that the city was facing “a battle against a rare storm, the likes of which we have never seen.â€

    This is all because they have a high bringing in N easterlies which travel mostly overland with little to warm them up - the same sort of thing happened in the US not so long ago and didn't Houston get some unseasonably cold weather? and that is virtually on the Gulf of Mexico.

     

    In the meantime we have been getting southerlies, making it mild for the season - you just can't trust those damned jet streams at all.

    Egypt Sees First Snow Storm In Years

     

    A winter storm has brought snow to Cairo for the first time in decades and has blanketed parts of the Middle East. Egypt's state MENA news agency said the country's two Mediterranean ports near the city of Alexandria and two ports on the Red Sea remained closed for the third consecutive day on Friday. Ali Abdelazim, an official at Egypt's meteorological centre, said it was "the first time in very many years" since the last snowfall in the suburbs of Cairo. Precipitation of any kind is rare in Egypt so the rare sight of snow has been much talked about on social networking sites such as Twitter.
