“Not common” snow continues in Argentina

“Though snow in Argentina is not too uncommon, snow over coastal portions of Argentina and Uruguay is quite rare.”
Snow fell Saturday and Sunday across parts of both Australia and Argentina, and more is likely early in the week.
Snow in the Southern Hemisphere is not too uncommon, however, snow in some of the major cities or even close to these is not common.
Snow accumulated around Adelaide, Australia, Saturday morning and Sunday morning. The Adelaide Hills, which includes Mount Lofty, saw nearly an inch of snow, or 18 millimeters, something that occurs once every few years.
The hills to the east of Adelaide may see more snow in the next few days.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the hemisphere, snow fell over parts of Argentina, with heavy snow in some of the ski areas over southern Argentina.
The snow accumulated over 30 centimeters (12 inches) in some of the more inland spots of Argentina over the weekend.
