Breaking Philippines News! Province Benguet in the Philippines has a anomalous snow phenomenon
The first snow in the Philippines! In Manila, the heat is 42 degrees, and only 5 hours drive from the capital in the mountains snow fell.
Benguet Highlands is 5 hours drive from north of Manila.
Snow is a very rare occurrence in the Philippines. This one looks more like pieces of ice. The snowfall in Benguet, Philippines is an anomalous phenomenon.
Benguet is a landlocked province of the Philippines located in the southern tip of the Cordillera Administrative Region on the island of Luzon. Its capital is La Trinidad.
To be precise, these mountains are called the Central Cordillera, and occupy these picturesque mountains one sixth of the largest Philippine island of Luzon.
Snow is one of the varieties of precipitation. Small crystals form inside the clouds, falling to the surface in winter and in cold weather. Huge snow masses are made up of billions of small snowflakes.
Snow can be called frozen rain falling on the ground in winter in countries where the temperature at this time of year is below zero.
An interesting fact: snow is considered a mineral. This theory was put forward by the National Data Center for the Study of Snow and Ice. Mineral, by definition, is a solid homogeneous substance, which has an inorganic origin, composition, particle arrangement. Snow is frozen particles of water. Water is turned into ice, which forms at a temperature below 0. Since ice is homogeneous and has its own unique structure, and also formed in an inorganic way, it fits the description of the mineral. And if ice can be considered a mineral, then snow too. Photos from Facebook
