Rare Snowfall In North America’s Hottest Desert

A remarkable photo has surfaced depicting the Desierto de Altar, North America’s hottest desert, covered in snow following its first snowfall in decades.


The Sonoran Desert is well-known for its parched scenery and scorching climate, spanning across the northwestern Mexican states and parts of the southwestern US.


With summer temperatures frequently soaring to 48°C, snow is an uncommon occurrence.


However, an unusual weather pattern brought a massive storm to the region, issuing the first blizzard warning since 1989 in some parts, including the mountains of Los Angeles.


As a result, portions of the Sonoran Desert received up to 10 centimeters of snow.
