KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): After months of dry weather, most provinces of the country, including Kabul, received rain and snowfall on Tuesday. The wet spell is expected to continue over the next couple of days.

Plain areas were lashed by rains and mountainous regions of Kabul, Jalalabad, Mazar-i-Sharif, Herat City, Charikarinfo-icon, Pul-i-Khumri, Maidan Shahr and other cities by snowfall.

The overnight rains and snowfall brought smiles to the faces of millions of people, including farmers. Many people, especially children, had been suffering from seasonal diseases.

Most people took to social media, sharing pictures of snow and rainfall and thanking Allah for breaking the dry spell. Lack of rain and snowfall had worried farmers, who feared a drought and falling water levels in dams.
