Weather warnings across Saudi Arabia until Friday but some are delighted

The national civil defence authority has issued warnings for multiple provinces

Saudi Arabia’s civil defence authority on Sunday called on people to be careful ahead of turbulent weather conditions across the region from Monday until Friday.

Lt Col Mohammed Al Hammadi, a civil defence spokesman, asked the public to abide by government instructions and stay away from places that could be flooded easily, to ensure public safety.
Based on reports from the National Center of Meteorology, the authorities issued weather warnings with a high risk of heavy rain and brisk winds, that may cause flooding across several regions in the country.
Saudis are using the change in weather to showcase the diversity of the kingdom by sharing videos of rainfall in their cities on social media.
Light rain is expected in the the Eastern Province. Heavy rain and torrential flows are expected in Makkah, Asir, Al Baha, Jazan and Najran. Less or moderate rain is expected in Madinah, Qassim, Hail, the Northern Borders Province, Al Jawf, and Tabuk.
