This map illustrates the extent of the snow cover caused by the storm "Alexa" that moved through the Middle East region in mid-December, striking Jordan and the West Bank from about 12 - 14 December. This analysis was based on satellite imagery collected by the MODIS sensor on the NASA Terra satellite on 15 and 16 December 2013. As seen in the imagery the snow has covered a very extensive part of the West Bank territories affecting the cities of Jesuralem, Ramallah, Hebron and Nablusm, and large areas of Jordan as well. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
