It’s snowing in the Sahara Desert. The exceptionally rare weather event, which has only happened in the North African desert a few times in the past 40 years, took place earlier this month near the town of Ain Sefra in Algeria.

Ain Sefra is situated in the Atlas Mountains of Algeria. While the Sahara is known for having a range of temperatures throughout the year, snow and ice are not a common occurrence.

The region typically has a high of 98 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer and 14 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter. The world’s largest desert has only experienced such weather four times before in 1979, 2017, 2018, and 2021.

Snow in Sahara result of climate change?
