This phenomenon can rarely be seen in the most famous desert in the world. In the Algerian province of Besar snow fell in mid-last week, and it even spread to some parts of Morocco.
These unreal scenes have been witnessed in Africa; the palm trees are bent under snow and large sand dunes now look like alpine ski resorts.
African media say that this unusual phenomenon can have many favorable effects. Cold weather will kill pests in the trees and the snow will increase the amount of ground water so the desert oasis will be able to survive, and of course the children are surely happy.
Snow has fallen in Western Sahara in mid last week. The storm that lasted nearly 24 hours brought snow and cold weather across the whole region. Strong wind created snowdrifts in the Besar province and the people who live in the region once again stressed the importance of the cold weather.
