Snow Falls In The Sahara Desert For The First Time In Almost 40 Years
It’s officially winter, and one incredible event in the Sahara Desert is ringing in the new season in a way that hasn’t been done in almost 40 years.
While snow can be both a blessing and a curse, some parts of the world go years without seeing any semblance of a winter wonderland. With average temperatures in the high 80s, the last place you would expect to see snow would be in the heart of the Sahara Desert. But if 2016 has taught me anything, it’s that you should never say never.
The Sahara Desert is often considered the driest and warmest region in the world with an average temperature of 86°F.
