We've heard Toto bless the rains down in Africa, but what about the snow? Well, the Sahara Desert actually received 16" of rare snow Sunday, January 7th. This is the second winter in a row after a snowless streak of nearly 40 years. December of 2016 was the last time the Sahara Desert saw snow. https://twitter.com/Strange_Sounds/status/950119545167077377 How does this happen? Well, a high pressure over Europe ushered in a very cold air mass into northern Africa. https://twitter.com/Tonylean/status/950412965576093696 You can even see that snow all the way from space. Check out a view from NASA satellites where you can see the blanket of snow in a very unusual spot. Now when you listen to this song just replace "rain" with "snow."   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTQbiNvZqaY   For WeahterNation, Meteorologist Kate Mantych
