* 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.

*** Except that the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) explicitly predicted that “Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms.” Oops.

** 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 to snow as inconsistent with global warming predictions is not necessarily wrong.

* 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.)

Eventually, they find the penguin with the bucket and make him stop.

* The original ''TransformersGeneration1'' cartoon episode "Fire In the Sky" has the Decepticons tapping the Earth's geothermal energy and chilling the planet. The Autobots become suspicious when it begins snowing in July at their desert base.
* In the ''GIJoe'' miniseries "The Revenge of Cobra", the Joes attack Cobra's desert base to stop the villains from using their rebuilt Weather Dominator. Among Destro's weather attacks is an instant snowstorm.
* In the ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' episode "Take Me To Your Leader," Shredder and Krang use a Solar Siphon to drain the sun's energy and make the Earth cold. The turtles discover something's amiss when it starts snowing in July.

* In ''SpiderManAndHisAmazingFriends,'' Spidey and Iceman first met during a LetsYouAndHimFight situation. Iceman got Spider-Man's attention by causing a freak blizzard during the summer. Iceman wasn't seen actually throwing snow around to do it (as comic Iceman would likely have to. Making ice constructs and changing weather patterns aren't the same power; he isn't Storm.) but appeared to be just willing it to happen.

* Played with in the ''ZigAndSharko'' episode "Cold Snap". In it, the island and surrounding sea is suddenly covered in snow and ice, but it only snowed briefly to cover the area in snow and ice. Otherwise, the snow doesn't fall.

** However, the increase of snowfall at this point ''is'' a symptom of climate change. Namely, it is caused by a decrease of large bodies of water having less ice in winter, allowing more liquid water to be evaporated and ascend into the atmosphere in winter and come down as snow.
