In the Sahara the second time this winter the snow fell

This is the second snowfall this year — both times the natural phenomenon was observed in the town of ain sefra in the North-West of Algeria.

According to a local online publication the TSA, snow falls on the desert sand dunes for the second year in a row. Before this it was not in the region for over 30 years.© NASAСнимок snow in the Sahara desert satellite NASAIn the Sahara the second time this winter the snow fell© NASAСнимок snow in the Sahara desert satellite NASA

In summer, the temperature in the area of ain sefra reaches 37 degrees Celsius, and in winter can fluctuate at a level close to zero.

Sahara Desert town is covered in snow for the second time this year as stunned locals play on the sand-dunes covered in the white stuff. A 37-year spell of no snow ended in December 2016, and it has snowed four times since then https://t.co/VPNuvV8XXm pic.twitter.com/9tHS5l0HCL
