I would say in everyday vernacular, 'It's sticky hot in the jungles and bitter cold in the Arctic' are fine For the more formal English use, I agree with Austin D. :)

No, it’s not correct. You can either say: “There’s sticky heat in the jungles and bitter cold in the Arctic.” Or “It’s brutally hot in the jungles and bitterly cold in the Arctic.” Note that in the second sentence, I used “brutally” instead of “stickily” because “stickily” sounds very bad. Hope that helps :)
