The Ain Sefra, known as The Gateway to the Desert, is around 3280 feet, an estimated 1000 meters above sea level, and the Atlas Mountains majorly surround it. Specifically, the Sahara Desert covers most of Northern Africa, but it has experienced shifts in temperature and moisture over the years.

While it’s presently dried, the desert is projected to be green again in about 15000 years. Similarly, photos of camels after a snowfall in the Tabuk region in Northwestern Saudi Arabia emerged. The area, which is close to the border with Jordan, experienced weird weather this January. The desert kingdom experiences highs of up to 50C during the hot season, but was this month faced with a temperature below zero.
