I live in New Jersey, America. Its located in the North East next to New York. I have seen a big difference this year from all of the other years. For 1 thing there is a warm mist in the air during the day. I have never experienced this type of haze here. During the day I have to drive with my winshield wipers on, when its not even raining. I am sure those in Florida are used to having misty days, but New Jersey is suposed to be moderate temps. Also, probably brought on by the misty haze the THUNDER is incredible. During storms I get the feeling that the loud thunder could level a big building. The power that is being released must be awsome. I have never heard any thunder like this before in my life...Now it happens at least twice a week.

We had a storm come through here a few days ago. WIth less than an hour's rain, some houses had their basements flooded and their foundation washed away!! Not normal for us. And, I was outside watching this storm come in...and I'm with the previous poster, the thunder (and lightening) was awesome, yet odd!!

This is in central NY

This is also the 7th day straight of extreme heat alerts in Toronto.


No one issues weather alerts for temperatures that reach the 90's here though.


I suppose if the temperature and humidity have a combined heat index over 100, the weather service does issue heat alerts. I heard at least 105 heat index later today and the actual temperature on Wednesday is supposed to be 100 so I wouldn't be surprised if the heat index was over 110 that day. This heat reminds me of a summer job at a glass plant where temperatures inside were about 120 to 140 degrees and we went outside to cool off where it was 105 that summer. The hottest I ever saw it was 180 degrees F. They told me my face was still red minutes later in the breakroom. I walked past a thermometer and it said 180 in the glass plant. That's too hot.

180 degrees, that's pretty insane. Dangerous stuff.

Gee, that's only 32 degrees below boiling... (that would be 212 degrees Farenheit or 100 degrees Celsius)

Somehow I just can't believe that as the ambient room temperature. Perhaps the thermometer was way too close to the glass firing ovens. While people could stand that temperature for an hour, maybe, without serious side-effects, I don't think they'd last too much longer (IMO, I didn't take the time to look up facts on this, however...)

Sweden holds Sauna championships (These people are, IMO, more messed up than the Polar Bear Club types) during which contestants endure 110 degrees Celsius for as long as possible. That's 230 degrees farenheit, by the way, 18 degrees above boiling point. Again, sickos, IMO.

Unless this site ( www.scandinavica.com... ) is outdated, the world record time is 16 minutes and 15 seconds. Now remember, humans can withstand hotter air temperatures for FAR longer than water temperatures...You can boil someone to death in water in less than a few minutes, I would imagine. But still, that's HOT. And not in a "Wow, she's HOT" kind of way...

Dawnstar... -central NY state--- yeah, I'm near you and we are finally getting our first rain since 3 weeks ago..and you guys got drenched!!...we are lucky we have gotten what we have...and I agree with the NJ poster...very humid. since last year i noticed the change. Plus my TV blew out from electrical storm last week and my cisco router gave up today..the tech guy said it must be from lightning in the area that damaged it..just fizzled out..

The thermometer was on the other side of a walking aisle near an outside wall. It was extremely hot outside that day and that was a normally very hot spot in the glass plant. I guess that's what happens when a glass plant is in the southern US and outside temperatures are in the 100's. That was the hottest temperature I saw on that thermometer all summer and no one was working in that location.

If you sweat easily I believe very high temperatures such as 120 with very low humidity are easier to take than say 100 degrees with very high humidity.
Actually this little heat index calculator actually confirms that 100 degrees with say 65 percent humidity feels a lot hotter than 120.
www.srh.noaa.gov...

A little side note here: I saw temperatures up to 103 degrees on Tuesday.

all of our computers are on their last legs I'm afraid. The memory boards are blowing, or the hard drive is frying. Our house is usually hotter than it is outside, and well, I think it's just getting too hot for those little fans to handle it. (the humidity can't be doing it much good either.) We had one of the large fans just blowing on the computer, but well, we took our fan back for ourselves...lol!! nice and cool today, and rain...but well, it's nice and cool!!

The demand for cooling was evident at PJM Interconnection LLC, which coordinates the movement of electricity between 13 states ranging from Illinois to North Carolina. The power grid reported setting a record Tuesday with a peak load of 135,000 megawatts -- enough to power 108 million homes under normal conditions.

"It was 120 (degrees) in the direct sunlight," said Walt Arrison, a surveyor at the construction site who kept a small key chain thermometer in his pocket.

I live in southern Finland, near our capitol Helsinki. For those who don't know where Finland is, it's between Sweden and Russia.
Anyhow, the weather this summer has been abnormally warm, we haven't seen many rainy days here this summer.
The average tempreture has been between 20C and 28C.
I think this has been the warmest summer that I recall through out my short life of only 18 years. However I could be wrong, need to see some statistics somewhere.

Last year we had more rain than we've had in many decades.
In the beginning of July it had rained almost as much as it usually rains through out the whole summer (can't remember the figures now), summer here usually lasts from the middle of May to somewhere in October.

It looks like global warming is getting publicity regarding this hurricane season, at least in AOL news today.

It snowed all the way to sea level in southern Australia.

The Santos Dumont Airport in Rio de Janeiro and the Guarulhos International Airport in Sao Paulo, Brazil have shut down all operations and expect to keep the airports closed through today because of snow.

I realize it's winter there right now, but when I look up the temperature statistics for Rio I get low at 19 C, high at 26 C and mean at 22 C for August.

What in sam hill? This isn't normal, right?

On a croatian island called Hvar, which is a well known tourist destination, they had ice falling from the skies recently, three times in a week or two.

That in itself is not that unusual, only that over there, people dont remember that it ever happened before

Lightening, thunder and wind seem much more intense this summer. Usually lightening just strikes when the front hits... now it is more throughout the rain we get. The thunder actually set off my neighbors car alarm the other day. Last year we were clobbered by hurricane Ivan and this year by Dennis. We saw golf ball sized hail (very odd) earlier this summer with accumulation that covered the surface but disappeared within 25 minutes because it was so hot out. Our beach is almost completely vegetationless following our two hurricanes... then to make matters worse the fools in charge widened the 2 lane road on our narrow migrating barrier island to a full four lane highway to move the corporatites from their huge gulf view towers, destroying the remaining vegetation. the odd weather has brought an increase in mosquito population due to debris collecting pools of water. The hurricanes have brought about a tree phobia amongst the people, leading to perfectly heathy trees being cut down for fear of them one day falling on houses. Now there is substantially less shade making it seem hotter.

Times are changing... We are moving to the mountains. Just purchased 22 acres on top of a stone cliff in Missouri, geologically stable, and well protected by national forests. I suggest you head up stream too.

well I've noticed that thunderstorms that popped here in So. Florida about two weeks ago were much more intense than any I've witnessed in recent memory. It was the frequency of the lightning strikes and how close they seem to be, it was like one strike every two minutes...really intense but thankfully quick moving...other than being opressively hot and the lightning strikes...I can't say I've noticed anything else out of the ordinary here.

We had the same thing going on here in Orlando WorldWatcher. Very severe thunderstorms, very frequent and intense lightning strikes. Of course if i'm not mistaken Florida is the lightning capital of the Earth, no? So maybe not weird but certainly scary....at least not 4 hurricanes in 6 weeks tearing through my neighborhood this year.
