    So far, the high in the Halifax region of Nova Scotia was 34 degrees C. That was about two and a half weeks ago. I was at sea, but my wife says it was murder. I believe her. That's unusually hot for around here, even at the peak of summer. We've had the temp reach 27 to 28 C a couple of times too this year. Today was about 23 C and tomorrow it's supposed to get to about 25 C.

    89 in Denver today. Last week we broke 100. Tomorrow its supposed to be 98. Here's the kicker - we're 5620 feet above sea level!

    The good thing - humidity here runs no more than 10%.

    It's been hot for about a week or so, but all in all, this year has been mild for the summer here. It was over 100 in the Valley today and that started about thursday of last week. Not sure how long it will last.

    Heat Wave across the States and North America.... We've been over 90+ for awhile now, and with 100% humidity, that makes for some real long days...

    Funny avaryone's using his common type of degrees... We had over 35°C but combined with a cold front so the weekend was 50/50 sun/rain.

    well I haven't got the air temperatures but last Thursday our rail head temperature gauges hit 57C 134.6F so it must have been fairly warm
    I think in the low 90's which for the UK is hot

    For a while it was unusually hot in Germany but today it cooled off. We have been having some pretty bad thunder storms to go with it.

    Been hot here again, with humidity, which is not normally this high. Last night at 9:00 PM, it was 81 F. It was warm this morning when I left the house as well.

    Nine people have died in Arizona from heat-related illness. I'm in a cool, cold and grey region of the world called Doncaster. I'm not getting any of this heat.
