Take it easy there, D. Stay cool and drink lots of fluids with ice.

Stay cool, this heat wave will soon be over, (but climate disruption seems likely to grow).

In some cities it might feel as hot as in California's Death Valley - a desert region known for its extreme heat. But they say a dramatic change is on the way early next week, when it is expected to suddenly cool off.

Damn, P, I didn't even think about daquiris! Frankly, I was too hot to move. And even my computer gave out! Stay well all.

6 dead so far from this monster, and it's still rolling.

Roll away the dew!

Is it Karma that civilization in the temperate latitudes will suffer the most extremes of climate change when it is from these same latitudes that humans have produced the most CO2 emissions?

Well last week we had a day when the high was 42°F, coupled with a fog running to heavy mist it was a damn damp cold.

I still think Jennifer Francis has the best explanations for all this. Which would mean, this is just the first introduction to CC.

So...Litchfield 'won' the highest heat index award! :-D :shock:

It is not accidental that this town is surrounded by cornfields. The evaporation from these fields can create extremely high dew points/humidity levels. This is why the first place in the US that will get to the deadly level of wet bulb temp (95F with 100% humidity or equivalent) will likely be in the upper midwest rather than in the Florida or other place near the tropics.

They tend to be good heat insulators and incidentally it keeps buildings during summer rather cool.
So there is not much need for airconditioning..


That is true and a very good point. And yes, most new development home in the US are aluminum or wood framed, particle board, dry wall. No cement blocks, flimsy. Hurricane proned areas have building codes that basically just add metal straps to secure the flimsy walls and roof structure.

UK seems to be heading for temps in near 40 C (104 F) later this week, which would shatter heat records.

Heat wave will hit the continent as well:

Here we go again! Heatwave alert plan for parts of Europe as another week of scorching temperatures is coming just a month after a similar heatwave in June.

http://www.thebigwobble.org/2019/07/her ... -plan.html


Paris authorities on Monday activated a heatwave alert plan for the capital as France prepared for another week of scorching temperatures just a month after a similar heatwave in June.

According to Reuters, the “level three” alert includes measures to ensure that elderly and vulnerable people are checked up on regularly and that rooms are set aside for shelter.

Meteo France forecast temperatures in Paris reaching as high as 37 degrees Celsius (98.6 Fahrenheit) on Tuesday.



Parts of Holland are expected to see temperatures approaching 40 deg C, 104 deg F on Wednesday and Thursday with the chance of a new record for the country.

Parts of Belgium will see temperatures reach at least 38 deg C 100 deg F on Wednesday and Thursday.

The Met Office has issued warnings for a dangerous heatwave in the UK Wednesday, heat will continue to build in central and eastern parts with highs reaching 35°C.
Thursday is expected to see the peak in temperatures with 37°C possible in the south-east of England. The current July record is 36.7°C set at Heathrow in 2015.

The all-time UK temperature record is 38.5°C recorded in Faversham in August 2003.

How is everyone else who is in this heatwave, covering most of the contiguous US, as I understand it, doing?



Lowland tropics do the following. Work from 6:00am until 9:00am. Siesta in a hammock and light work under the shade of a mango tree from 9:00am until 4:00pm. Work from 4:00pm until 7:00.

Washington's Potomac River Hits Record High Temperature

https://phys.org/news/2019-07-washingto ... ature.html

The Potomac River, which flows through the US capital Washington, hit a record high temperature of 94 degrees Fahrenheit (34 degrees Celsius) over the weekend—as warm as bathwater—following a major heat wave.

To summarize this quite historic day for Central European temperature data, I try to make a short list of records I saw in media (good possibility that i missed out some):

Belgium - All time record broken
38.9C in Kleine-Brogel
Old record was 38.8C set in June 1947

Netherlands - All time record broken
39.1C in Gilze-Rijen
Old record was 38.6C set in August 1944

Germany - All time record broken
40.5C in Geilenkirchen
Old record was 40.3C set in July 2015

France - City record broken
Bordeaux with 41.2C (Tuesday)

Switzerland - City records broken
Sion with 38C
Neuchâtel with 37.9C
Aarau with 37C
Scuol with 33.8C
Moléson (mountain station) with 26.4C

Note 1: Tomorrow more records will probably be set (candidates are BeNeLux, UK, France, Germany).

Note 2: In the heatwave some weeks ago, June records have already been broken this year in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Andorra, Luxembourg, Poland, Germany and Earth as a whole.

(Thanks to phil at asif for these)

This year has been very disturbing and it is only half over. Guy is not off the mark by any means.

[I mean we sort of expect El Nino and La Nina events to shape the weather and give us those swings that weather is notorious for. But, a monotonic upward trend in temperature matching the upward monotonic rise in yearly average CO2 levels, is a bit depressing to me, if that is indeed the case.]

I had to work outdoor @ 42 C it was brutal.

Germany summer 2019 @ 415 ppm CO2
