  It’s quite a time for weird weather, and it doesn’t get much weirder than snow falling in one of the hottest places in the world.

  世界上最热的地方居然下雪了,没有比这更奇怪的天气了。

  On Sunday, Ain Sefra, a desert town in Algeria known as the "Gateway to the Sahara," experienced a substantial amount of snow for reportedly the third time in 40 years. Some reports say parts of the area got nearly 15 inches of snow, but Ain Sefra officially reported less than one inch.

  阿尔及利亚的一个荒漠小镇艾因塞夫拉,被称为“通往撒哈拉沙漠的大门”,星期天,这个小镇降了一场大雪。这是40年里报道的第三场大雪。一些报告称部分地区降雪量达到近15英尺,但是据官方报道,艾因塞夫拉的降雪量不到一英尺。

  It was enough to provide some otherworldly visuals from an area that routinely sees some of the hottest temperatures on earth during the summer.

  能够在世界上夏季最炎热的地方看到超凡脱俗的视觉效果,真是足矣。

  Now, it’s not uncommon for the temperature across even the hottest of deserts to plunge tens of degrees Farenheit at night, meaning any unusual snow could stick around for a while. But photographers at the scene said the snow actually stayed intact for a good portion of the day.

  如今,即使在最炎热的沙漠地区,夜晚温度也会骤降几十度,这就意味着任何不同寻常的雪都可以保持一段时间。但是现场的摄影师说,当天大部分的时间里,积雪都保持得非常完好。

  "We were really surprised when we woke up to see snow again," photographer Karim Bouchetata told Shutterstock. "It stayed all day on Sunday and began melting at around 5 p.m."

  摄影师Karim告诉Shutterstock说:“我们醒来再次看到雪时真的很惊讶,星期天,雪保持了一整天,下午5点左右开始融化。”

  While snow is historically scant in the desert area, a similar snow phenomenon happened just last year. Before that, it had been 37 years since Ain Sefra’s last snowfall.

  尽管历史上沙漠地区很少降雪,但是去年就出现了类似的降雪现象。在那之前,距艾因塞夫拉上次降雪已经有37年了。
