Following a rather severe cold spell this week, temperatures in the northern region and highlands of Saudi reached -7 centigrade.
To demonstrate how cold it has gotten, a Saudi man recorded a short video clip where water in a bottle freezes over in a matter of seconds. In the video, the bottle of water is seen turning into ice as the man tries to pour it out.
According to newspapers, the video that was uploaded on YouTube on 24Dec was shot in Al Qassim province in central Saudi Arabia.
Another video that was recorded in the northern city of Ar-Rass in Qassim that shows how cold it has become in the region.
