Snowfall in Sahara Desert, a rare thing that happened in 2018

Viral Pics It's snowing in the Sahara Dessert no we are not kidding Snowfall in Sahara Desert, a rare thing that happened in 2018
Bennie Garza | 13 January, 2018, 01:46

With temperatures touching 1 degree Celsius (33.8 Fahrenheit), residents in the northern Algerian town of Ain Sefra enjoyed sliding down the small sections of dunes on Sunday morning before the snow melted away.

They made snowmen and snow angels, which could be the only time in their lifetime they'll play in snow in their home town. While many USA states record their coldest temperatures ever in the bitter winter chill that grips the eastern United States, Australia, on the other hand is experiencing its hottest temperatures in almost 80 years at 116.6 degrees Fahrenheit. While snow is historically scant in the desert area, a similar snow phenomenon happened just previous year.

So, no, those thinking that this is a sign of the apocalypse, they are sorely mistaken. Then again, in winters, it can see snow drizzle in too. But, the snow actually stayed intact for a good portion of the day.

In an unusual weather occurrence, the Sahara Desert, a region known as one of the hottest parts of the globe experienced a rare sprinkling of snow over the weekend.

Snow rarely falls in the Sahara where temperatures in the summer frequently hit 38C to 40C (100F to 104F), but it is the third time in nearly 40 years that Ain Sefra has seen snow, with it also receiving a blanketing in 2016 and 2017.

Ain Sefra is around 1000 metres above sea level and surrounded by the Atlas Mountains.

Although the Sahara is very dry today, it is expected to become green again in about 15000 years.
