It isn't often you see snow in Arizona, but when you do, it's magical. Unusual wintry weather has recently arrived at the Sonoran desert transforming the dry, red rocky terrain into an otherworldly winter wonderland.


Stunning pictures from locals have emerged recently, depicting how the snow has beautifully dusted the region’s iconic saguaro cacti and blanketed the mountains of Arizona and New Mexico. Scenes from the Grand Canyon on New Year’s Day depict the immense landscape looking ever more mind-blowing in a thick layer of powdery white snow. The city of Tucson had reportedly 0.4 inches (1 cm) inches of snow, while elswhere in Arizona had up to 18 inches (46 cm). Meanwhile, the Los Alamos and mountain areas of New Mexico reported getting 20 inches (50 cm) of snow. Even Southern California had a flurry or two.


The unusual weather was because of a deep pool of cold air at high altitudes that had been swirling over the region since the end of December. The cold spell will not last long, however, with much milder conditions due to return within a couple of days.
