The UK has provisionally recorded its highest ever temperature on Tuesday: 102.4°F (40.2°C).

It was the first time the UK recorded a temperature over 102°F (40°C) per the Met Office, the official weather organization in Britain.

The reading was taken around London's Heathrow Airport just before 1 p.m. local time. Temperatures were forecast to rise further still through Tuesday afternoon.

The previous record was 101.6°F (38.7°C), from 2019. It was beaten Tuesday by a slew of readings in southern England over the 100-degree mark.

The record came on the second day of extreme heat, and followed the hottest-ever night in Britain.

The UK's Met Office said Monday night was the hottest ever night recorded in the UK. It cited a minimum temperature of 78.4°F (25.8°C) in Kenly on the outskirts of London, though warned the reading may later be revised.

It was pretty hot in Houston today but not that bad. Europe is fucked! We are exiting the Ice Age quickly and some serious shit is about to happen over there because of it. Personally, I am going to move to Colorado pretty soon somewhere in the mountains and encourage my family to do the same :)

I wouldn't be so sure about moving to Colorado.

Denver hits 100 degrees, sets new record high for July 18

Denver set a new record high of 100 degrees for July 18 on Monday, breaking the old record of 99 set in 2020 and other years, and marking the fourth 100-degree day so far this year.

That puts 2022 tied for sixth in terms of the most 100-degree days in a year. The summer of 2012 leads that list, with 13 100-degree days; 2005 sits in second place, with seven. And Denver saw five 100-degree days in a year three times, including last year.

Monday also marked Denver’s 29th day so far this year the high temperature has reached 90 or more degrees. The record was set in 2020, when there were 75 days at or above 90 degrees.

The record all-time high temperature for Denver was 105 degrees, last set on July 20, 2005.

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
