Sunday’s drop in temperatures throughout Morocco has led to the first snowfall, reaching 30 centimeters in Ifrane. The city, known as Morocco’s “Switzerland,” is not used to see snowfall this early before winter. Most snow falls in January. So yes it’s another unusual weather event!
With snow-covered evergreens and steep-peaked houses, Ifrane becomes a winter wonderland with each snowfall. The temperature in Ifrane was -1 degree Celsius yesterday.
Locals in the Atlas Mountain villages of Imouzzer, El Hajeb, and Boulemane and the city of Midelt also woke up to snow on the ground.
On Monday, strong winds from 70 to 90 kilometers per hour have swept the regions of Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima, Fez-Meknes, Rabat-Sale-Kenitra, Beni Mellal-Khenifra, and Casablanca-Settat.
Heavy rains, with precipitation ranging from 30 to 50 millimeters, hit Chefchaouen, Fahs-Anjra, Kenitra, Larache, Ouazzane, Tangier-Assilah, and Tetouan on Tuesday.
Cold temperatures, between -3 and 10 degrees Celsius, will dominate Al Haouz, Azilal, Beni Mellal, Boulemane, Figuig, Guercif, Ifrane, Jerada, Khenifra, Midelt, Ouarzazate, Sefrou, Taza, and Tinghir.
Another strange weather event…
