Residents of central and southern Iraq opened their curtains Tuesday morning (Feb. 11) to an incredibly rare scene — the first “settling” snowfall in over a century (AFP).
Baghdad’s last recorded snowfall –of any kind– was the trace received in 2008 (solar minimum of cycle 23), however that was an uneventful, easily missed affair; with residents young and old reportedly calling this morning’s flakes the first they’ve ever witnessed in the Iraqi capital.
Prior to 2008’s brief falls, it is OVER A CENTURY (1914) since the city had received even a trace.
Accumulations have also been reported south of the capital, carpeting the Shiite holy city of Karbala.
Locals here too are calling this the first snowfall ever recorded.
“Snowfall may continue until Wednesday given the very cold weather,” said Amer al-Jaberi, media head of the Iraqi Meteorological Center.
“This cold wave came from Europe,” he told AFP.
While snow is slightly less rare in northern Iraq, for a severe winter system to descend this far south, so as to engulf central and southern regions of the Western Asian nation, really is quite incredible.
Social Media is currently exploding with flabbergasted users sharing photos & footage:
