It is the third time the town’s red dunes have been blanketed in the white stuff, in 38 years.

Last January saw a metre of snow coat the world’s hottest desert, with a sprinkling of flakes falling, in December 2016.

Prior to that, snow had not been in Ain Sefra, since February 18, 1979, when they had a flurry which lasted just 30 minutes.

Snow started falling in the early hours of Sunday morning, and quickly began settling on the sand.
