Lebanon's wettest winter in 16 years may have dealt its last blow, with warmer and drier weather expected throughout the week. Although May is around the corner, many woke up Sunday to weather more reminiscent of Christmas morning than Easter, as heavy rains and snow persisted across the country.During the same period for 2017-2018, the figure was 543 millimeters -- making this year's downfall an almost twofold increase over last year.It is a good sign, according to Afram, who pointed out that between the years 2003 and 2018 Lebanon had unusually low rainfall.Many experienced a white Easter, with snowfall reaching altitudes of 1,100 meters.Snow had started to accumulate at an altitude of 900 meters in Rashaya and Western Bekaa, with 5-20 centimeters of snow in higher mountain towns. Twenty-five centimeters of snow blocked the road connecting Shebaa to Rashaya, and heavy rain caused the Hasbani and Wazzani rivers to flood.
