Uzbekistan and Pakistan - January 16th, 2011

Snow can be seen in the Kyzyl Kum Desert in Uzbekistan and southern Kazakhstan near Aydar Lake. The area around the lake and part of the Syr Darya River in the upper right corner is free of snow.

However, some snow is present by the reservoir created by the Sharadara Bogeni dam at Chardarya, Kazakhstan. The Syr Darya seems to connect the reservoir to Aydar Lake.
