 In the afternoon of January 8, 2019, the first snowstorm in winter appeared on Fansipan peak in Sa Pa district, Lao Cai province.

This is a low intensity frost, appearing locally on the top of the Indochina roof in a cold weather, about 5 degrees. Many people are surprised because the usual snow and ice will come when the weather is very low, dry and clear. However, this time the snow fell at the same time with a heavy rain like a thunderstorm in the middle of winter.

However, due to the thin amount of snow, accompanied by heavy rain, only after about 3 hours, the snow has melted and has not appeared again. According to some meteorologists, this is a strange and unusual weather phenomenon, proving the unpredictable evolution of the climate.
