31st January - Today's News: First Cyclone of 2014 Hits Queensland

Meanwhile the South Australian towns where it gets really hot battle for recognition

US Deep South snow maroons motorists in scenes reminiscent of England (back when we used to get snow in winter .... )

More floods and gales to cause transport chaos across much of Britain - could be snow to even low levels for a time in Scotland too, and a lot more above 2,000ft where there is already some of the deepest snow for years, in fact there's more snow at Scots resorts than 2010 winter olympics site, Whistler in Canada.  And indeed, more than many other resorts in the US and the Alps.

No real surpise that January rain breaks records in parts of England.  Even  in Evesham we're looking at close on 200% of normal January rainfall this month.

Heavy rain, snow pounds Italy with the Arno river at its highest for 20 years

Heavy snow causes travel chaos in Poland - but Europe looks like warming up again this weekend after just a brief spell of 'winter' (and for Britain, there'll be colder air to the west than the east)

And a lucky escape as boulder smashes through Italian farm - actually 2 boulders, and interestingly, one ended in a field by another, similar sized, boulder that fell many years ago.
