Residents in parts of Argentina, particularly in the city of Cordoba, woke up to the surprising sight of snow on Wednesday, June 16, 2021. It was the first time the city was covered in white in 14 years.
Snow in the city is believed to have occurred on very few occasions in the past 100 years– in 1912, 1918, 1920, 1955, 1975, and 2007.
The National Meteorological Service of Argentina reported snowfall not only in Cordoba, but also in other parts of the country like Mendoza, San Luis, and in elevated areas such as San Juan, La Rioja, and Catamarca.
The Highway Police had to close some roads on national and provincial routes, but no significant incidents were reported.
The meteorological service noted that winter will officially begin in Argentina on Monday, June 21, but temperatures between -2 and 5 °C (28.4 and 41 °F) are expected all week.
