The heaviest snow storms for decades have struck the eastern US, paralysing air and road transport, and bringing Washington DC to a standstill.

The storm knocked down power lines and left hundreds of thousands of people without electricity.

Nearly 2ft (60cm) of snow had fallen by noon on Saturday in cities across the region, the Associated Press reports.

The governors of Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland have declared states of emergency.

West Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey are also affected.

Sysco, the largest wholesale food distributor in the US and primary supplier to most supermarket chains, has declared force majeure (the "act of God" clause) that allows suspension of contracted prices and supply of fresh fruit and vegetables due to the "unprecedented magnitude" of "devastating" and "extreme freezing temperatures" in a "very broad section of major growing regions in Mexico." Sysco also reports "Florida is normally a major supplier for these items as well, but they have already been struck with severe freeze damage in December and January and up until now have had to purchase product out of Mexico to fill their commitments, that is no longer an option."

Australia's summer forecast: Fair chance of disaster

AUSTRALIANS have been warned there is no room for complacency this summer, with weather forecasters making predictions of bushfires, cyclones, torrential rain and severe thunderstorms.

Queenslanders, still recovering from last summer's disasters, have been told to brace themselves for threats from multiple fronts.

Fire crews across the country, from the northern fringes of Victoria right up to the tropical north, are on alert amid fears huge tracts of dry vegetation - overgrown thanks to the big wet of last summer - could ignite.

Bureau of Meteorology deputy director-general Bruce Gunn yesterday told a closed-door briefing of Cabinet ministers that at least four cyclones could form in the Coral Sea and may cross the Queensland coast.

Thunderstorms look likely to batter Queensland's southeast while the state's north and parts of NT could be swamped by heavy tropical downpours and an above-average number of cyclones.

The return of La Niña means increased rain in the north and east of the country and cooler temperatures.

La Nina yet to peak, may last until 2012 by Vinson Kurian

The currently strong La Nina condition in the Equatorial East Pacific would continue to grow and reach peak strength over the next few months, according to Japanese researchers.

The Climate Variation Predictability and Applicability Research Programme at the Tokyo-based Research Institute for Global Change (RIGC) has maintained the outlook for La Nina to last long and persist until early 2012.

COLDER WINTER

A La Nina event, in which warming anomaly shifts to the West Pacific, has traditionally favoured a good Indian monsoon as evidenced in the 2010 season.

According to Dr Jing-Jia Luo, Senior Scientist at the RIGC, the strong La Nina would bring colder surface air temperatures over many parts of the globe during this winter and the following spring.

Exceptions are the Northern Eurasian continent and Southeast North America where the odds favour a warmer-than-normal winter.

Snow On Way As Temperatures Plunge, Hannah Thomas-Peter, Sky News Online

Britain will shiver again this week in a blast of wintry weather forecast to bring snow to some parts of the country.

Eastern England will be most at risk of snow showers as overnight temperatures plunge below zero over the next few days.

It will feel cold in the day too, with temperatures falling to 1C (3F) in some places as a northeast wind strengthens during the week.

But forecasters say there will not be a return to the arctic conditions that caused chaos last month, and the snow will be patchy when it falls.

Sky weather presenter Denise Nurse said: "It'll be a cold and rather cloudy day today for most, although western Scotland and the northern half of Ireland will have some good sunshine.

"Most places will be dry, but there'll be showery rain in the East, and especially the South East of the country. Some sleet and snow are likely at times there too, especially over the hills, but the snow is unlikely to settle."

Heavy snow is set to return to parts of the UK over the next two days, the Met Office has warned.

After a freezing Christmas Day, the temperature climbed on Sunday - but that looks set to prove only a temporary reprieve from the cold weather that has caused travel chaos across much of the country over the past ten days.

The Met Office has issued severe weather warnings for today, with showers likely to add to snow already lying in northern England, Scotland and Wales.

Meteorologists expect the situation to deteriorate during the early hours of Tuesday morning, as a band of snow moves across the country.

London, the West Midlands, Yorkshire, the south-east, north-west, north-east, east and south-west of England are facing the prospect of 10cm of snow, with 15cm expected on higher ground.
