29 Jun 11 - The southern parts of Brazil, a tropical country, have been stricken by record low temperatures, while several towns of Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina have reported snow.

The temperature fell to minus 8.8 Celsius (about 23F) in the small town of Urupema on Tuesday, while in Cambara do Sul, along the southern border, the temperature dropped to minus 6.2C.

Three cities of the southern region also recorded record-low temperatures for the year on Tuesday. The lowest was in Curitiba, capital of Parana state, where the temperature hovered around one degree above zero.

In Sao Paulo state, in the southeastern region, temperatures also fell to record-low levels: in Sao Paulo the mercury fell to 2.3 degrees, the lowest since 2003, and in Campos do Jordao the temperature dropped to 3.8 degrees below zero, the lowest since 1998.
