Snow in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere? It’s a possible and likely sight during the transition season. NASA took the photos below in late August and early September. Both were shot using the NASA satellite MODIS. As shown in the images below both areas are in high elevations and latitudes allowing for the more likely hood of frosty event. But the catch is that the Top photo is from Siberia in Russia and the Bottom is from Tasmania in southern Australia.
What does this mean? The signs of winter beginning to set in across eastern Asia and the western pacific, yet in the south the rough edged snow displays pack melt and thus indicating that spring is starting to move in across the south and then Cyclone Season right around the corner.
