Winter storm Barbara has left Tel Aviv’s port blanketed in white.

It’s not snow, but foam from the Mediterranean.

Meteorologists tell Channel 12 that the foam is created when the high winds and large waves churn up organic material.

While it is a normal occurrence around the world, it is considered relatively rare in Israel.
