An unusual cold front last week brought one of the driest places on earth, the Atacama Desert in northern Chile, up to 80 centimeters of heavy snowfall.
The national emergency center in Chile says this is the first time the area has seen this much snow in 20 years.
And due to this, roads were closed and a number of vehicles stranded.
Local media reports say authorities have rescued 36 people caught in the snow.
Plus, other South American countries such as Uruguay and Argentina has also been affected by the cold front which brought sub-zero temperatures.
Meanwhile, in Serbia.. a heatwave has hit the landlocked Central European country.
The mercury soared to over 40 degrees on Sunday which raised alert levels,especially for the elderly.
