Has it ever snowed in the Philippines? Like, in its highlands in the north?

I don't really believe it though, especially since it's in summer as well.


Here's a fun one: What's the largest deviation from average that has ever occurred? Both daily and monthly.

My guess is Prince George, British Columbia

Average low in January: -11.7 °C
Record low in January: -50.0 °C
Difference: 38.3 °C

Yeah, this one is a fake and it has been debunked I believe. Perhaps there have been flurries in the very northern (highland) parts of the country, since it's quite adjacent to the Siberian-influenced eastern Asian continental mass. But I don't know.

Yakutsk, in April:

Record high: 21.1C
Average high: 1.7C
Average low: −11.8C
Record low: −41C

Albany, Australia is another good one (well, for Aussie standards and it's worth mentioning): A high of 44.8C recorded in a month (February) where the average maximum temperature is 22.9C.

I'd say the arctic weather buoy that just recorded 0.4'C with -30'C average could be the high winner.

from all smhi summaries of the world weather i've read (starting in the mid 90s), +17C/31F in ostrov vize seems to be the largest positive monthtly deviation. largest negative monthly deviation i've read about is -14C/25F in western siberia. all this is relative to the 61-90 average.
