Rare snowfall in August blankets Chilean desert

This phenomenon usually takes place every two or three years in June and July, according to meteorologist Daniel Díaz from the Northern Regional Meteorological Centre.

Northern Regional Meteorological Centre, Daniel Diaz, said, "This does not occur yearly. Maybe a relatively important snowfall like the one today can happen every two or three years. For this time of the year, late August, is something relatively unusual because this is usually seen in June and July."
