It’s strange enough that torrential downpours have been lashing Vietnam during its dry season, stranger still that temperatures in the north have dropped below the freezing point and blanketed the region in snow.

Local tourists piled into cars and drove north to see the freakish snowfall, forming five-hour traffic jams along mountain roads, according to Al Jazeera.

The news comes on the heels of another freakish snowstorm that swept through the Middle East and blanketed Cairo in snow for the first time in decades.
