New images of the Sahara Desert blanketed in snow have appeared this week on social media.

We all know the Sahara as the world’s driest desert, with temperatures soaring up to 50 C. Along with Death Valley in California and certain cities near the equator like Dallol in Ethiopia and Wadi Halfa in Sudan, it’s one of the hottest places on earth.

The enormous desert spans 11 countries: Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Western Sahara, Sudan and Tunisia. Sand dunes can reach up to 180 metres high and water is scarce in the region.

So when recent photos showed the dunes covered in beautiful icy patterns, it might have left you wondering - how is this even possible?
