On the other end of the scale, snow is due to hit alpine regions in Tasmania on Wednesday.

Parts of Australia, including Sydney, sweltered through the hottest November night on record with temperatures likely to stay high on Sunday, prompting authorities to issue a total fire ban.

Sydney CBD surpassed 40 degrees Celsius (104 F) on Saturday while swathes of western New South Wales, South Australia and northern Victoria baked through even higher temperatures nearing 45 degrees.

Temperatures are expected to cross 40 degrees for a second straight day on Sunday while the Bureau of Meteorology has predicted a five or six-day heatwave for parts of northern New South Wales and southeast Queensland.

More than 60 cm of snow has fallen in parts of the Chilcotin since a snowfall warning went into effect Thursday, Nov. 26.

On Friday afternoon Graham West, a member of Ulkatcho First Nation near Anahim Lake, forwarded a photograph to the Tribune depicting a measuring tape with a snow level of 64 cm or two feet and one inch.

"Just got word the RCMP are on a snowmoblie with a nurse delivering meds to clients within the community," he said.

Earlier in the afternoon West said he hoped to get up on his roof to shovel because the snow was getting heavier.

GFS 2m Temp Anomalies (C) for Dec 2.
While the mainstream media reports "Australians are set to sizzle through the most dangerous heatwave of the year so far," what they also fail to mention is that 1) such bursts of heat are typical for this time of year, 2) the conditions will last fewer than three days, and 3) they will be closely followed by record-cold Antarctic air and even rare December snow.

Snowstorm (including thundersnow) hits island of Madeira

With snow reported the day before, we woke at 430am and drove as far up the mountain as possible. The roads were too icy to continue driving so we began hiking 10 kilometers below the summit of Pico do Arieiro a couple of hours before sunrise. In a crazy snowstorm, with frozen fingers and toes we reached the summit to see lightning strike the tower! Can't believe it was snowing on Madeira!

Colorado's latest snow storm is wrapping up, leaving the Interstate 25 urban corridor with a winter wonderland, a mess on the roads and a new spot in the history books.

Denver International Airport tallied 5 inches of snow. This is a record daily snowfall for Nov. 24, breaking the old record of 4 inches set in 1946. Even more notably, it was the first daily November snow record to fall in the city since 1994. Snow totals across the rest of the metro area generally range from 3 to 6 inches, with heavier amounts up to 10 inches in the western suburbs.

This was a rare November snowstorm in the Denver area beyond the record-breaking amount. Another rarity lies within the heavy and wet nature of the snow.

Tuesday's historic blizzard in Labrador shut down everything from roads and flights to provincial government offices and schools.

A record-setting blizzard shut down parts of Labrador, forcing the closures of roads, provincial government offices and flights Tuesday, as well as schools in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, North West River and the regional College of the North Atlantic campus.

The potent low had already slammed Ontario and Quebec with a blast of widespread, heavy snow last weekend, and also brought strong winds and heavy rains to Newfoundland through Tuesday.
