Neither of these three cities have ever recorded falling snow but all have recorded subfreezing temperatures which means at least a flurry is possible (I think) so here goes another "which is more likely poll"... (I promise I won't post anymore of these type polls for another month)...

Which city is most likely to get a freak snow flurry (no accumulation required)?

A) New Delhi, India

or

B) Hong Kong, China

C) Calama, Chile

New Delhi for sure. Hit 37 F for a low with dense fog and flurries 110 km north of the city couple days ago.

Ooty at 5700' got freezing rain with a high/low temperature of 41/30. The peak, doddabetta around 20 km away at 7150' recorded a low of 27.3 F with 1.6" of fresh snow. How amazing is that at 10.5 N. Kids having snowball fights in south India .

The mountains in HK's New Territories don't count, do they? I cast my vote on that presumption...

The problem is very cold temperatures for a place are usually associated with stable air and nightly temperature inversions which cannot produce precipitation. I'm leaning towards all three are impossible. Though New Delhi is perhaps a bit more likely than the other two.

I'm going to guess Delhi by a slight margin.

Hong Kong.

Lower lows. China's coast has gotten snow. I don't think New Delhi's surrounds has gotten snow (besides the MOUNTAINS)....
