Yeah! You don’t need to adjust your vision. You read correctly.
The title of this article has even us scratching our heads in disbelief! And no, this is no April Fools Day joke. According to reports, snowflakes actually fell in the hills of the French island of Guadeloupe.
The light snow fall took place on March 31, in the hills of St. Claude and has stunned meteorologist both locally and internationally.
French meteorologist, Alain Museleque, explained the extraordinary phenomenon on Guadeloupe Premiere TV.
“We had a mass of clouds that arrived over St. Claude,” he said in French and translated by McCathie Marie. “Accompanying this mass of clouds was some very cold air. In this very cold air, in the mass of clouds, we had the creation of some snowflakes which fell to the ground. This has never before been seen in Guadeloupe. This is an exceptional event that we will never forget.”
