    We could hit record highs today! I believe it is around 29C right now.

    That is nothing for people from Jamaica....All depends where you live it does get up close to and over 100F here I think we've had as high as 37C


    37
    =
    98.6

    Formula
    (37°C × 9/5) + 32 = 98.6°F That is not counting the humidity which would drive it up over 100F.... I believe someone said the other day it was 43C in Arizona, I'd melt or need to be in front of a air conditioner! 😉

    Phoenix had a cold front blow through Wednesday (prolly the same one you have now) so it went down to 97F. It was 111F last Saturday, and it'll be back to 109F by Friday.

    I don't know how you people handle those kinds of temperatures. Air conditioning must be going at all times?

    Yup, you are right on that! They say it was 90 but a dry heat, well we don't get no dry heat surrounded by water always humidity in the air.

    For sure, I live on a Peninsula which Nova Scotia is I live next to a lake also. I am assuming your humidity would be even higher than ours with Niagara falls, and two of the great lakes....You know how much the humidity can drive the temperature up.
