Snowfall – in the middle of August – hits south west Yunnan, China

Unexpected snow blanketed the Baima Snow Mountain Nature Reserve in Deqen Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in southwest China’s Yunnan Province.

The unusual snowfall – in the middle of summer – results from the consecutive rain and decreased temperature. High altitude areas such as the Baima Snow Mountain Nature Reserve have turned into a world of ice and snow.

    It’s a forecast, 10 days out. It will change over that time period, but it’s not forecasting nice golfing weather in the 80s. It says snow in August.

  2. I can rembember snow drifts atop of Pikes Peek in mid July and early August, 2006. The last time we witnessed sleet and a hard storm. My wife left her finger prints in the dash board and door grips.

  3. Maybe you never heard the term ‘Nuckledragger’ Robert but I took up snowboarding at age 50 which proudly makes me one. So please post my previous.
