The video was filmed by Carlo Budel who lives 3,330-metre high at the Dolomite peak.

This rare phenomenon was filmed on July 21 and shows heavy snow falling over an already blanketed ground of snow. The storm is so strong that visibility is clearly reduced and objects disappear in the distance into thick-grey fog.

Despite the current weather forecast not predicting snowfall as temperatures are at an average of 15C this week, snow can still be seen on the ground.

Mr Budel’s most recent Instagram post from Tuesday morning shows clear skies and blanket of snow.

This bizarre snow storm can be explained as a “rare and fascinating phenomenon” has happened in the Dolomites.

Dr Andrea Garbinato specialises in the field of meteorology and said: “These meteorological events are connected to the instability that arises from the contrasts between the fresh Atlantic air and the warm air present on our territory, whose outcomes can only be obviously showy and striking at the same time.”

As snow covers the Dolomites, the tourist hotspot of Venice is sweltering with temperatures of 29C. The two towns are only 166km apart and yet their climates are poles apart.

However, Greece and Sweden are currently being ravaged by wildfires.
