Post What is the weather like?

The Indian Summer has reached an all time high where I live. Summer is oppressive beyond all material description. Hope some of you can imagine how it must be like here

Take a look at the BBC weather report for my city, Chennai today:

42 Celcius and so far the hottest day of summer. My eyes are burning in the heat... No relief.

How is the weather like in the city where you live? Hope it's better.

42 C, that is within my preferred temperature range, although I believe 44 % humidity is a bit dry? Anyway, the weather here is quite warm... for a winter. We now have ~20C, and it's 80% overcast. Another such summer, and I'll really call it quits and move to somewhere in the aequatorial vicinity. Malaysia, maybe.

About 30*C in Phuket today with occasional showers. All in all quite pleasant

One of my friends is the Chef at the Park Hotel in Chennai and he also complains about the heat !!

It's been in the mid 90's F. This week it is much cooler. But it looks like it will get hotter next week. But that is still going to be much cooler than 42c (about 107 F)

It's in the mid to upper 90s F in Houston, but the humidity makes it feel like it's in the 100's F. ( I don't know jack about Celsius) I just know the air is like trying to breath syrup.

Right now as I write this, in the middle of the United States, it's 21° C, sunny, calm, low humidity. I think I need to get away from the computer and enjoy this - in about 3 weeks it's going to approach conditions in India

Unhappy Arizona!!!!

It's approaching 109 (farenheit) here. quote "I don't know jack about Celsius". I just forgot. It is unusually cool for this time of year, normally we'd be in the 110's daily, and creeping up tp 115. That's right kids. Our lows are in the high 80's and low 90's. He he. Can somebody tell this stupid American what 42 Celsius should mean to me?



Let's just say you lose your shower just going to the car

X degrees Celsius == ((X*9/5 ) + 32) degrees Fahrenheit, so 42 Celsius would be 107.6 Fahrenheit. See more at

It's in the 90's in the Dallas, Texas area. Gonna get up into the hundreds this next week. By August I predict it will be 140F.

42 celsius! Holy shite. We may get a day or two that hits 36 to 38 in mid summer. Usally its around 26.

Lately its been cool and cloudy with some rain. Highs of 18 or 19.

I'm on the west coast of Canada.
