That's a lot of snow

Snowfall as low as 300 meters throughout northern parts of the country was in the forecast, but snowfall at sea level surprised residents of Sidon Friday. Schools in high-altitude areas were closed for a second straight day, as weather forecasters expect the rainy, windy and snowy weather to last until Sunday.
