Snow In The Sahara

It snowed in the desert! We know what you’re thinking, that cannot be possible. Well, it has happened before and it just happened again. For the first time in 40 years, there was a light dusting of snowfall in the Sahara desert. In other words, even the Sahara cannot escape winter’s blistering wrath this year.

Sixteen inches of snow fell on the Algerian town of Ain Sefra, turning the normally red-orange sand dunes into ski slopes. Not to get too scientific on you, but the shocking snow was apparently due to high pressure systems in Europe pushing cold systems further south than normal. Further south than normal being into the desert.

Though snow is rare in Ain Sefra, the last time the gateway to the Sahara saw snow was 37 years ago. It looks like we can’t escape winter this year guys, even if we hightail it to the desert.
