1st Snowfall in Tehran

1st Snowfall in Tehran 1st Snowfall in Tehran

Citizens of Tehran enjoyed the first snowfall on Thursday, which blanketed northern districts of the capital and disrupted traffic on several roads.
The neighboring city of Karaj also experienced heavy snowfall, which brought motorists to a virtual standstill on one of the major arteries leading to the northern province of Mazandaran along the Caspian Sea.
Nevertheless, Tehran Municipality was not forced by the short-lived flurry to take any special measure, as the snow thawed out due to the preceding rain and the following rise in temperatures.
Other major roads across northwestern and northeastern provinces were struck by howling snow blizzards, prompting authorities to issue road alerts.
