A very interesting fact I borrowed from Jim:
"Nepal, where Kathmandu, its capital city, had rare snow Wednesday_14th.feb. There were drenching thunderstorms along the Himalayan foothills (amongst which the city lies) and it must have been towards the hed of these rains (late in the day) that rain turned to wet snow or even small, soft hail. Whatever, the cold, white stuff lay on the ground, reportedly for the first time in more than 60 years."
Even Darjeeling in W.Bengal had snow,after 2 years,and a minimum of -2°c.
