    Ouch ...... that's inconveniently hot, IMHO.

    Here in Lofoten, at the height of summer, one will still see enclaves of wintery snow on the cliffsides, even at 50 m above sea level, provided they have shade all day. Temperatures often tend to be pleasant, 15-20 degrees, and there are almost 24 hours of daylight. Lots of wind today, though, and some rain and cloudiness in the morning. Wind is mostly coming from the North in July-August, I would have thought from the West like in Denmark. But today it came from the South.

    Southern Arizona always 'bakes' from mid May through well into October. Normal temps are in the low 100's (F), and 84 at night.

    I got out of church yesterday at 10:30am and it was already 94 (F) outside!

    The monsoon season is getting a late start here ... today we got a few sprinkles, just enough to get a clean car very dirty.

    I took this photo during the day time. My thermometer showed 43°C in the shade.

    20190722_155229_HDR.jpg

    Official weather station was 42.1°C at that moment. Today's official high has been 42.5°C. However, yesterday's official high was 45.0°C.

    I'm just hoping to see the sun. We only see it once a year up here in Scotland.

    The statistics which were bandied about during the (first) Scottish Independence referendum were that if Scotland left, the UK's life expectancy would increase, and the number of rainy days would decrease. While pedantically correct........

    Needed to get a jar of coffee so I went the long way round for half an hour in order to stretch my legs - it's reaching the sort of temperature where the warmth would really start to sap my strength if I was walking about for much longer. As of now it's 32 deg. C here in landlocked Worcestershire and humid with it.

    It's 32 here in sunny Oxfordshire too, but the humidity ain't bad, so it seems survivable. Off to France tomorrow, long drive south, and temperatures well over 40 expected for the trip.

    Looking forward to watching birds flying across the sky and spontaneously combusting.......

    I gather on this occasion we can thank the French for their warm air drifting north. Is all this to do with the sirocco or something?

    You're reminding me of a chemist who came down from the University of Utah with the team on one of our projects a few years ago. He said he'd always been interested in weather as a hobby but he wanted to learn more about the general scientific foundation for various weather conditions.

    He was also a musician so we started out talking about his general foundational approach to music. Chords in the circle of fifths while some unrelated chords sound good because of the preparation for them in the melody.

    In chemistry it's the the atomic structure and the periodic table, ..was there something like that explaining (categorizing) what happens in weather outside your window?
    He didn't have much to do until the data was downlinked and so for a few days we spent a lot of time together in my chart room.
    I learned that interested people will come across the universally applicable basics of music and those of chemistry - but weather? How does a chemist keep in mind a correctly reduced concept of various weather conditions. That’s what we struggled with. It was a crash course. He got it and he went home too start to keep a more relevant set of records, and he does email me about them occasionally.

    My point is, all questions about weather can be answered with a little bit of study, but as with other large subjects you need to learn the relevance of the breakthrough discoveries which explain everything.

    Today the temperature here will be in the 35 deg.C range, which usually happens once a year or so. Tomorrow will be 38-40 deg.C, with a >50% chance that the long-time record highest temperature measured in the Netherlands (38.6 deg.C, 1944) will be broken. Sub-30 temperatures predicted from Sunday onward.
