The eleventh episode of a weather story program that talks about yellow snow

 

The word snow is usually associated with the pure white scenes, but in a strange weather event that affected the Levant and Jordan a deep depression in the year 1998 and snow fell, but it was yellow.

 

On 3/18/1998

The Levant and Jordan were affected by the deepest depression in the history of climatic records, as the atmospheric pressure in this depression reached 985 millibars, and a deep depression had formed around the island of Feras on March 16, 1998, and this caused the beginning of a sharp and significant rise in temperatures in Most of the regions of the Levant, where the temperature reached approximately 27-28 degrees Celsius.

 

The depression was accompanied by strong strong winds whose gusts exceeded 100 km / h, which formed sandstorms in parts of Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Syria and Lebanon, and a noticeable decrease in the range of horizontal visibility.

 

The depth of the depression led to the withdrawal of a very cold and polar air mass towards the Levant, and thus led to the formation of a snow storm only after the temperature reached 27 degrees Celsius in Amman and Jerusalem, and because of the dust, the snow was yellow.
