* In the ''DoctorWhoNewAdventures'' novel ''Sky Pirates!'', which takes place in a PocketDimension that runs on RuleOfFunny, when the Doctor's companions find themselves in a cabin on an ice planet, they periodically open the door, say "T'aint a fit night out for man nor beast" and get hit by a flurry of snow. Eventually, they find the penguin with the bucket and make him stop.

** To be fair, while snow in and of itself doesn't disprove global warming, the fact is that winters in the US have become progressively colder and snowier over the past two-decades[[http://www.forbes.com/sites/jamestaylor/2014/04/30/twenty-years-of-winter-cooling-defy-global-warming-claims/#5237bc03e523]], so pointing out that the presence of snow is inconsistent with global warming predictions has some merit.

* Whenever a large snowstorm occurs, expect to see members of certain political factions ranting about how "the climate can't be getting warmer because of all this snow!" or something to that effect
** However, the increase of snowfall at this point ''is'' a symptom of climate change. Namely, it is caused by a decrease ice on large bodies of water in winter, allowing more liquid water to evaporate and ascend into the atmosphere in winter and come down as snow.
*** Except that the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) explicitly predicted that “Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms.” Oops.

* In ''BeakmansWorld'', every episode is [[BookEnds begun, ended,]] and [[ReactionShot occasionally interrupted]] by a scene of two [[FunnyAnimal talking]] [[EverythingIsBetterWithPenguins penguins]] watching the show from the South Pole. It is perpetually snowing during all of their scenes, which is particularly interesting because in one rapid-fire Q&A session, Beakman explicitly points out that the South Pole actually gets very little snow.

* Subverted in ''Film/FantasticFour: Rise of the Silver Surfer'', when the Surfer's passage causes snow to fall on the Great Sphinx outside Giza, Egypt ... ''without'' a corresponding drop in temperature.

* In DC's ''FinalNight'' CrisisCrossover, (in which the [[PlanetEater Sun Eater]] does ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin) there was a lot of snow. Although the point was made that as it continued, the snow would eventually stop, because all the moisture would have already frozen out of the air.
* {{Storm}} from ComicBook/{{X-Men}} is sometimes shown to make it snow in the middle of the savannah in flashbacks. (At least it's not a desert.)
