Locals were stunned to see snow on the sand dunes in the Sahara Desert today after it snowed in a small Algerian town for the second time this year.

Children could be seen playing on the snow-covered sand dunes just outside the town, while others posed on the snow to document the rare event.

The heavy snowfall makes the sand dunes look like snow-covered Alpine mountains



Snow was last seen in the town of Ain Sefra on February 18, 1979.

In 2016, the town known as 'The Gateway to the Desert' saw deep snow shortly after Christmas and it caused chaos, with passengers stranded on buses after the roads became slippery and icy.


While Monday's snowfall was unusual, the town was covered in the white stuff last month, the third time in nearly 40 years.

If you like quote me and call me dumb or shortsighted.... The fact remains that the world is coming to an end. Strange things are happening everywhere. What seems impossible are now possible. Live your life as if you won't exist again the following day.

this might be a result of climate change or due to the movement of the African continent towards north every year... if this continues for at least five years then I'll believe its a change in their climate... I hope it favours them though

Climate change sister!
Plus, the temperature of deserts rises with the sun and plummets at a surprising speed as the sun sets. The sands are loose so they don't retain heat.

probably one of the rare effects of climate change.
But no matter how you look at it, it's extremely strange.... Snowfall in the sahara?...definitely an anomaly

It's not the sand, it's the lack of water. Water acts as a temperature buffer, holding heat during the day and giving it back at night. It is for this same reason that the surface of the moon behaves likewise.

Would any of us live FOREVER if the world NEVER comes to an end? "live your life as if you wont exist again the following day" Is the reality called DEATH, that INEVITABLE we so much ignore . Thanks for the advice, its a good one.
