The storm "Zina" is starting to ease, with a clear rise in temperatures forecast for over the weekend, but first, Lebanon must prepare for a chilly Friday. Already this week, the bad weather has blocked several key highways and roads, damaged much vital infrastructure and killed four people, most recently a small girl in the town of Bibnine in Akkar. The weather Friday morning, according to the department, is expected to be cloudy, accompanied by intermediate and sporadic showers and snow, especially in the Bekaa Valley and the south at areas 400 meters above sea level.Temperatures for Friday are expected to range between 4 and 8 degrees Celsius in coastal areas, between -5 and -2 in the mountains, -10 and -9 in the Cedars, and -5 and 0 in the Bekaa Valley. The meteorology department explained that starting in the afternoon, strong winds reaching 65 km/hr and sporadic rains are expected, with snow due in areas 1,800 meters above sea level during the night.Villagers appealed to Civil Defense teams and the Army to help clear roads blocked by thick layers of snow, which have cut off many parts of the country for the past two days.
