my observations is that the sun is hotter than i remember, now it could just be me, but in the u.k. i have notice that the weather was not that humid or even hot in the sense of sweating and needing water or ice cream, but the sun itself was burning. within 5 seconds of being stood in it you could feel a spot on your body that would start to burn.
like standing to close to a campfire and when your cloths touch your skin it burns. i remember it taking much longer to do that in the past.

when the sun went behind a cloud it just felt like a nice day with a cool breeze, the sun comes out again and it instantly starts to burn.

i remember hot weather to the point of sweating and it being unbareable, but i never remember the sun being so hot that standing in one place for a matter of seconds starts to burn.

is this just me or has anybody else noticed it? it could just be i don't recall it from earlier years.

Its probably the ozone layer getting thinner making the sun burn more nowdays.

well the heat wave has ended where i am looks like 2 nights now with rainstorms. funny hen everyone normally whines when it rains well they aren't whining now lol.

this ISN'T the worst summer i can recall either we had one in the late 80's early to mid 90's where the city i live RAN OUT OF WATER. that hasn't happened so far this year. sometimes the weather can be extremely hot other years rather cool. it's just life.

now why do i expect we are in for one heck of a cold winter.

I know what you mean i live in texas we have drought just like yall. One of the biggest droughts in history. If their is no moister in the air then it will be hotter. Its seems brighter as well. I have lived in texas my whole life, I am used to heat but this is different. Its seems allot brighter out side. I have to squint my eyes, even while looking down.

Though we have been cooler than normal in the North West, I agree about the brightness of the Sun, it is brighter, and different somehow. When we have had sunny days, in the shade it still feels cooler than it should given the air temperature, and I can only think there is some sort of 'electronic' cooling, like maybe there is an electron drift from ground to air. Have to find out if that can be measured. We have also had more windy days than I have experienced in 30 years here. As others have mentioned, probably nothing exceptional over the long term, but a gut feeling is telling me this might be a sign of an increase in electrical phenomena beginning, by way of the Suns radiation.

About the Sun, are there not several Scandinavian prophecies stating that the Sun will shut down before the end and the stars will disappear(Bible also states the stars will disappear) and now we have discoverred a dark cosmic flow that no researcher can understand?

And currently we are at the last solar maximum before the end of this era, sort of the last tremors of the Sun? And the 30s were very hot and the 40s marked a big suffering of mankind during second world war...

Mayans stated 2012 was the end of this era, Nostradamus said July 2019(20 years after the persecution of Falun Dafa started in China in July 1999 - the very event that Nostradamus prophesied) will mark the end of this era.

There are seven years between these two prophecies and the Bible stated "seven hard years"...

Just my two cents, no truth offered whatsoever.

several months ago I read something about La Nina (or lack of her influence) disturbing the usual jet stream over the USA, changing the weather patterns. This was published because of the tornado season starting several months early. I wonder if this is also the cause of the heat wave. And some time ago I watched a documentary which stated that the Dust Bowl was also partly caused by a changed jet stream. Perhaps it's part of a longer pattern scientists have missed so far? I wonder what the weather was like in the 1840's- 1860's ( in the US).

I can't do much research at the moment due to surgery, before people tell me to start looking for the info
When my hand's better I'll start to search for more info.

High pressure that's been sticking with us all summer. Don't feel bad, it'll be another index of 120 here by Fri or Sat in VA. Just pray for some rain to at least give whats left of the crops a chance.

I have noticed this, when I was a youngster you could go out all day in the sun and not get sunburnt - not you go out for literally 20 minutes and get sunburn. The ozone layer is definately getting thinner

And although we had a nice couple of weeks in Spring in the UK, it is now cloudy and 20C outside - want the summer back!

if its just typical "summer" then why are RECORDS
being set? plus the avg number of days above a certain temp are also SETTING RECORDS..

alot of 'older' people (over 45) knew way less knowledge in their 20s-30s as the current "young people" do. there has never been a more Brainwashed, Gullible, or Ignorant about History crew than the baby boomers.

Normalcy Bias plays a HUGE ROLE

My question is-
What is up with all this cold and rainy weather??

In France, July has been nothing but cold, gray, and rainy. Summer has been called off this year, apparently. Usually we are suffering sweltering heat at this time. I'm wearing a sweater and turning on the heater at night!

Same as above....I'm in Vancouver and we've had the coldest summer I can remember...I think we've set a record for least amount of sunshine. When the sun does come out it's nice to see for a change.

Ten years ago, we had very unusual hot days in summers and winters were sometimes looking more like fall.

But in the last two years, temperatures, tho weird at times, has begun to come back to what we usually knew when kids. We still have peeks of hotter than usual days, and seasons seem off a little. But essentially, it all seems to be replacing itself.

I just pray it remains stable and as it was before...

I live in MN and it is unusual to have the heat and humidity this high. The poor elderly are dropping off like fly's. The obituary has more dead people in it lately and i fear it is from the heat we are exsperiencing.
I have been giving myself a cold wet rag and rubbing it on me, cuz we have no air conditioner and no money go get one right now. So freaking HOT. I feel like i'm in the African jungle.

It was a blessing, we got some rain here , cuz it came with a cool breeze, but it did not last long. At night was the best ever. I have never seen heat lightning like this, SO much of it lit up the sky like a strobe light for about a couple of hours. Long bolts of lightning shot across the whole sky. To bad i do not have a video camera. I will never forget that heat lightning.
