temperature update

A couple of days ago the predicted temperature for Wednesday November 20th, was 38C

That's 100.4F, already too hot for most people, including me

Then "they" predicted 40C,  which is104.0F,  getting a little hellish....

Tonight the updated prediction is 42C

That's 107.6F

That's an extra 2C per day (so far) and it's only for the one day, with days either side being much cooler than that. 
Tuesday at 29-30C= 84-86F, Thursday at 25C= 77F

WTH??

(if "they" keep adding an extra 2C per day to the current prediction, Wednesday will be 50C=122F)
(highly unlikely)

I miss autumn  😔

  1. Time to stay inside and work on Words for Wednesday ;)

    1. Uglemor; that's an excellent idea, usually I work on them on Thursdays.

  2. Wow1 That's a real scorcher! It's time to drink lots of water and probably move around a little slower than usual. It gets really hot here in Florida in the summer but it's the humidity that's so crippling. It makes it feel like a sauna all the time. Right now we're in our winter months so we have a lot of people complaining it's too cold! ha! Is anyone ever satisfied?

    1. Mildred Ratched; any slower and I'd be dead, I'm already a sloth. I will lie down and nap more and do things in the early morning before the heat hits. like watering the patch I call a garden. The air conditioner will make the day easier for sure.

    1. joeh; for me too, although growing up in the mid north I regularly spent entire summers in and out of the water at the beach and it was always scorching then. Aging makes a difference I think, also being away from there. My sister still lives there and somehow survives.

  4. Yipes! That's horrific. And your summer hasn't even officially arrived yet. Kinda like here. Winter isn't here just yet, but lots of places are already having record cold temperatures. I believe we've ticked off Mother Earth...

    1. Susan; in spite of your icy winters, I do believe the earth is gradually warming up, and we're getting the first taste down here. I'm convinced we've either ticked off Mother Earth or she's having hot flashes in between her blizzards.

  5. I am not good in the heat, my braincells don't operate. I really feel for all the fires and heat in Australia at the moment. It must be very stressful.

    Indoors and A/C would be the only solution.

    1. WWW; indoors and AC is the plan, right after I get up at the crack of dawn and water the plants. I'm going to try and sleep my way through the day.

  6. Ooh, I feel for you. We had a bunch of days in the 100 plus this past summer. Not fit for man nor beast.

    1. Arkansas Patti; I'll have the AC running so that's a big help. When I was much younger I thought nothing of running around in such heat, to and from the beach which was five minutes from my home.

  7. I am always b*tching about the winter here...and always wanting the warmth of summer, but 38 is not tolerable!

    1. Rain; I'm not happy about winter either and we don't get the freeze that you get. once we get used to the summer heat it's more or less tolerable with AC and just short times outside, but the suddenness of just one day over 40 is going to be hard, for a lot of elderly people, not just me, and families with babies that don't have AC will find it hard going too. I suspect fast food places will do a lot of business with people not wanting to cook.

  8. I'll be glad when summer is over...and it's not even here yet! We've not had those temps here, but it has been more than hot enough for me. Give me autumn and winter!!!

    I've got the fans on constantly...my two furry mates need to be cool...they are my priorities!

    Cuddles to Lola...I hope she is handling the heat down your way, River. Take care.

    1. Lee; I'm with you, bring on the autumn! Lola is handling the heat better than me. She doesn't mind basking on a hot windowsill, then for a cooler change she heads into the bedroom and sleeps on the fluffy blanket away from the sun. I keep her water dish in the bathroom where it is cooler.

  9. Killer heat, which is somehow missing us at that level.

    1. Andrew; you're on the other side of the Blue Mountains, the heat burns out a bit by the time it gets across.

  10. That is too much heat! I wonder what I would do?

    1. Joanne; if you're anything like me, you'll get stuff done in the early morning, then rest up all day with the AC on, or at least a fan.

    1. peppylady; 90F is too much for me too. I'm so glad my brother helped me pay for the AC.

  12. There are times when i just hope against hope the weather guessers are guessing again.

    1. messymimi; I think it is all one big guessing game, no one can be 100% accurate with anything weather related, unless they've somehow found a way to create and control. Now there's a scary thought, that someone might be doing this on purpose!

  13. Whew! I'd rather be cold than hot! Don't do anything strenuous in the heat.

    1. Val; strenuous?? HAHAHAHAHAHA! I gave up strenuous when I retired. I'm a fully fledged sloth now. I'd rather be cooler, but not cold. It seems I can't handle either extreme anymore.

    I sent a comment, was certain I did , it appears it didn't go through...:)

    1. Margaret-whiteangel; I thought you'd sent one too, the internet is getting weird with things disappearing. So far the forecast for Wednesday is holding steady at 42C.

  16. That's just too dang hot. We had that in our summer and it was hell.

    Usually at Christmas, the temp is in the low 80s, here in S. California. Big changes in climate world wide are taking their toll. I'd like some snow too!

    1. Susan Kane; it's quite normal for our summers, but it isn't officially summer yet and what isn't normal is that the hottest day is flanked either side by temperatures in the mid to high 20C range.

  17. I "found" you at Dora´s place and have the same: Bloggers give up.
    I had blogger friends my age (I´m 47) but most turned their back and tookk to Facebook.
    We still meet (in beautiful Perth) every two years, but most bloggers I am "with" these days have retired "already", as if blogging is not "in" anymore.
    Seems to be not only my problem...

    Freezing over here. 40+ would be better for me ;-)
    And yes, I am serious about that, too! Though I am thankful we have an aircon when being in our cabin in Perth!

    1. Iris Flavia; welcome to Drifting. I've given up blogging every day and now only post occasionally, plus a story on Fridays to use the Words for Wednesday writing challenge. Mostly I've just run out of things to say and I'm having a lot of trouble with aching hands, carpal tunnel syndrome plus arthritis. I've never bothered with Facebook, nor Twitter, even though I have family members on Facebook. I've got too many other things to do, a stack of real books waiting and plenty of TV shows on flashdrives and movies on DVDs.
      When you said Perth I straight away thought Western Australia, but then remembered there are several Perths throughout the world. I'm 67.

    1. only slightly confused; it won't be so bad for me, I'll be inside with the AC running, but being this hot with cooler days either side is hard to adjust to, especially for those who don't have AC. Makes me wonder how hot our summer will be. How are you? We all still think of you down here under the equator.

  19. Hi River,

    Dear oh dear! I can't imagine it being that hot in the UK.

    We reached 34 in the summer in London.

    At present we are edging closer to freezing (about 2 degrees today).

    :o)

    Cheers

    1. Plasman; is that 34C? what am I thinking! Of course it was 34C, I remember hearing about it on the news and wondering how you were all coping over there, since it is so unusual. Just reading about 2 degrees has me shivering and reaching for a blanket. I couldn't cope with that cold.

      Delete
    2. Yes indeed, River. It was -1 this morning. It rarely gets lower than -5 though. It's nice and crisp but you have to wrap up.

      :o)

  20. No thanks... I hope you're staying hydrated and cool! I'm just happy it's heading to the end of November and we've still got temps in the 50's n' 60'sF and no snow. It's crazy but I'm loving it. I could live in fall like weather year round.

    1. Magical mystical Mimi; definitely hydrated and cool. I have the AC running, outside awning pulled all the way down over the one window I have, inside blinds are also down and blockout drapes pulled closed. my living room is a comfortable 22C. The cool doesn't filter through to the back room though, so later in the day I will turn on a fan to blow cool air that way.
