Forums - General Discussion - It's snowing in Brazil

Lots of people knows Brazil as a tropical country with hot temperatures, but we just got hit with a intense winter. And in some parts of the country, it's snowing.

The video above is from Rio Grande do Sul, the southernmost state in Brazil. Today the TV news are talking about cold temperatures and possibility of more snow and frozen rains.

Unfortunately, they discarded the odds of snowing in Sao Paulo, my state. Too bad, I really want to see the snow. It's going to be very cold, though.

At first I thought "it's snowing in the summer?!" but then I remembered that seasons are reversed in the southern hemisphere, so winter for you guys is June-September, which is summer for us in the northern hemisphere.



People talk about how Brazil is a diverse country, so snow shouldn't be surprising. Snow happens every winter in the USA northern states, and sometimes reaches the southern states.



Yep it happens from time to time... and we will see people using it to prove there is no global warming.

We really are diverse in climate.

Of course we are, but that doesn't mean it's a common thing to see snow around here, it's stupid to suggest that. Personally, I've never seen snow here, and I live in one of the country's coldest regions. So, no. Snow is definitely surprising.

If those people would just understand what the word "global" in global warming stands for^^



Merry Christmas to you all.
