There is almost 1 million of population in Jos. Usually it never snows in Jos, however in 2014 after the rain the temperature lowered considerably and some water got frozen. People made photos of ice and little snow on the streets and near the fences. So, it does snow there, but it’s a very rare case.

I met an old british man sometime in the early 90s when he came visiting, he said he once lived in Jos long ago, & he also mentioned snow falling once in Jos, but precisely when, I don't know.

There was Snow way back in 1978 in Rukuba area of Jos.

There are usually hail stones every year; sometimes in June/July.

Lovely place.

Shame that reglious riots dented the image of this lovely city.
