A bomb cyclone tears off roofs in the Brazilian city of Curitiba
At least three people were killed as the southern Brazilian state of Parana was lashed by winds of up to 120kph from a 'bomb' cyclone which wreaked havoc across the area, bombarding the streets with high-speed debris.

The ferocious tempest ripped up trees, tore roofs off buildings and sent locals cowering indoors as shrapnel flew past their very eyes outside on Tuesday. Eyewitness video from Curitiba and elsewhere in Parana showcases the full fury of the bomb cyclone.

Comment: The term "bomb cyclone" can apply to both summer rain, and winter snow storms if they meet the following criteria from The National Ocean Service :
"Bombogenesis, a popular term used by meteorologists, occurs when a midlatitude cyclone rapidly intensifies, dropping at least 24 millibars over 24 hours. A millibar measures atmospheric pressure. This can happen when a cold air mass collides with a warm air mass, such as air over warm ocean waters. The formation of this rapidly strengthening weather system is a process called bombogenesis, which creates what is known as a bomb cyclone."
They develop and dissipate rapidly, and therefore are not often named as with tornadoes. An explanation from the UK's Met Office from 2019:

Valle Nevado, Chile
The Andes mountain range in Chile and Argentina has had large dumps of snow in the past week with more forecast.

Some resorts say as much as 1.2 to 1.5 metres has fallen.

Widespread frost engulfs Eastern Australia, but MSM says it's normal

Frosty Eastern Australia
An Antarctic blast has sent the mercury plunging across much of Eastern Australia, with below-freezing temps registered in many regions including Melbourne.

Australia's Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) warned on Monday that "temperatures at ground level can be many degrees lower than those recorded by standard weather stations, especially in calm conditions with clear skies."

And in turn, damaging frosts have ravaged many parts.

Areas in the Mallee, Wimmera, Northern Country, North Central, North East, South West, Central, West, South Gippsland, and East Gippsland districts have all had frost warnings issued, reports sciencetimes.com.

Dams are expected to be iced over, especially in northern parts of Victoria, due to temps as low as -4C (24.8F) and beyond in the mountains.

'Juneuary' hits Northern Rockies as nearly 6 inches of snow falls at Utah Ski Area

June snow in the Rockies
The calendar may say it's the end of June, but summer snow is making for some wintry scenes in parts of the northern Rockies.

Several inches of snow piled up in some of the higher elevations of Utah, Idaho, Montana, Colorado and the Cascades early this week, leading some in social media to use the term "Juneuary" because of the weather more becoming of January in June.

But even though it may seem strange, snow can fall in June and even early July in the higher elevations of the West.

This most recent round of snowy and cold conditions is due to an omega block pattern that developed early this week.

The jet stream plunged southward over the West, allowing colder than average temperatures and wet weather to return to parts of the region.

Hailstorm damaged maize crop in Matta, Swat.
Heavy rain coupled with hailstorm and strong winds damaged crops, orchards and uprooted trees in several districts on Sunday.

A severe hailstorm damaged standing maize crop, vegetables and fruit orchards in different parts of Swat district.

The farmers and orchard owners said it was for the second time in four months that the heavy hailstorm and rains had destroyed their standing crops and orchards, inflicting huge losses on them.

"Torrential rains and hailstorm in April and May had destroyed fruit orchards, including peach, plum, apricot, persimmon and apple, and standing wheat crop, inflicting heavy losses on the farmers," Fazal Maula, an agriculture expert, said, adding the Sunday's hailstorm was more severe than the first one, which has battered orchards and standing crops. The worst-hit areas were Matta, Khwazakhela and Bahrain.
