Horizontal Rain

"Brasil has been quite cold recently, especially here in Sao Paulo. But that's not how the whole week was. The first part of it was warm and then on Saturday night there was a cloud hanging over the city that looked like the mother ship from the movie Independence Day and the rain and cold hasn't stopped since. On Sunday it was seriously horizontally raining. I thought that was something invented for science fiction movies, but oh, how wrong I was."

Sao Paulo Climate

Though generally considered by Brazilians to be drizzly and rather cool, São Paulo's climate is by world standards actually warm and mild. Summer temperatures seldom reach 30°C (86°F), while frost is extremely rare. All-time record temperatures are 38°C (100°F) and -2°C (28°F). Rainfall is abundant, especially in the warmer months. Snow flurries were reported on one occasion in 1918. Neither São Paulo or the nearby coast has ever been hit by a tropical cyclones, while tornadic activity is uncommon.
