As officials try to solve the situation as swiftly as possible, another ominous sign looms high in the skies; Alexa, although a fair name for a fair maden – or not – seems to have taken on a different meaning this year, for it bears wind, snow and everything in between. According to the Agricultural Research Institute, The said storm will hit Lebanon next week with frost and snow.
On Monday 9th, freezing northern winds will hit Lebanon with rain and snow at 1000 meter above sea level, which might also cover the Bekaa area. The same applies for the following day. However, we will witness lower temperatures on Wednesday, 11, with torrential rain and snow reaching 800 meters above sea level.
Just as you might think this is over, temperatures will further drop in Thursday and Friday, accompanied by rain and snow, also reaching 800 meters above sea level.
The storm will recede on Saturday with a possibility to renew on Sunday.
