8th July - Today's News: Record Heat in Switzerland, Snow in Russia

Record temperature set in Geneva whilst in Germany, heatwave unleashes storms and tornadoes.   And whilst it's much cooler in Britain - in fact there's snow forecast for Scotland's highest peaks today (not unusual for the Ben and high tops of the Cairngorms though) - further south Spain locked into heat wave, no relief for weeks.  And there's every chance we could tap into the heat here again before the summer is out. 

Vorkuta: Russian town blanketed by snow in summer - although it's north of the Arctic Circle, snow there in July is rarer than it is in the Cairngorms.
