Holy crap, can anyone beat this temp?

we knew today was going to be a tad warm, predicted temp 32deg c

Little did we know what was instore for us!

Bearing in mind I am in snowy switzerland.

My weather station is linked to the Zurich Meteo for accuracy,

So give it your best shot guys......and girls, here we go.

I'm melting.

Way, way outside the normal operating temp range for a Scotsman.

Car said it was 35 on the way home.

Just can't get my head round it - when opening a door or window let's hot air in !!!! Wibble.

Humidity is awful.

Youre right that is pretty amazing weather for central Europe at this time of year - might be a late summer!

Unfortunately i'm not in Dubai. I'm about 900km NE of Dubai actually!

Enjoy the weather

Can't imagine what that would feel like!!

Also assume you mean F not C You have have been boiled alive


I was in Malta around the time the temp's went up to high 30's and with something like 80% humidity it was a horrible experience. Breathing really hot air.
