Christmas in July? Summer Snow Storm Hits Siberian Town of Vorkuta

27 09.07.2015 Инфо

As Europe experiences a mass heatwave, the northern Russian town of Vorkuta was hit with a surprise snow storm as snow fell in the middle of summer during the middle of the day. The coal-mining town is situated near the Arctic Circle, but snow is still unusual this time of year in Vorkuta. The settlement's average day-time July temperature is 58 degrees but a cool front brought the temperature close enough to freezing to cause this rare Christmas in July.
