26th July - Today's News: Winter Snow for SA and NZ

Winter continues to cause problems in the southern hemisphere with SA on snow go slow whilst in NZ, the cold snap harshest in 16 years bringing Motueka's first snow in several decades and leading to stores closed, deliveries halted with ice sheets warning for drivers.

In the US, amid floods, heat and wildfires, some positive weather news and also some bad, as a study suggests climate change to increase Yellowstone wildfires dramatically.

In Kenya: blackouts, rising bills as drought bites whilst in the related Somalia famine: UN WFP to airlift food to Mogadishu.

In Pakistan heavy downpour claims nine lives in Rawalpindi and there are concerns that Pakistan still not prepared for floods - though at present of course there's nothing to suggest we'll see a repeat of last years disaster.
