You may be interested to know that I'm trying to get funding for a project to support people during heat waves who don't have air conditioning. The idea is to get sensors in their houses long enough that we can figure out the thermal parameters of their houses, then use that for forecasting purposes. We should eventually be able to tell them how much of a difference pulling their curtains on a sunny day will make, using a window fan, etc.

I am interested to know, good idea.

Halfy its 26 degrees in my house, I don't have air conditioning, or a fan. curtains are useless, they make it worse, what you need is small windows and wooden shutters, curtains and carpets are terrible in the heat, so you need hard cool flooring and as little soft furnishing as possible. But window size is key, large plate glass is murder without air-con.

I know I've got no right to complain while you folks are roasting, but it's mid summer when we should have some warmth for growing cranberries, and instead we've got 55 F (13 C) degrees and dripping fog... Suspect

26 degrees C and you're complaining?! slap laugh Right now Texas is 46 C. New York City is relieved we got down to 26 C and have held it for a week.

Big windows need thick white drapes. Use window fans strategically at night, especially when there's a clear sky so you know the temperature will drop.

We have been in the low 30s here and we don't do air conditioning. Standing on a packed train is bad enough without everyone dripping and stinking all over the place.

30's here also Lance Sad Buses with tiny slats for windows, jam packed full of sweating bodkins Sad & as many foreign students they can cram on. Ive got 2 X 9" fans going in the front room aimed at the dogs & its not enough. The nights are unbearable as well. No let off at all.
Doesn't Marble floors help Figgs ? I can remember how hot Turin was when I used to visit friends there. We used to sleep on the balconies Smile

If even the busses and offices don't have AC then anything around 30 C will be bad. Since it's not cooling down at night you must have high humidity and clouds as well.

Yep, been a mix of quite humid up to really humid.

My office has aircon but the trains (inc tube) that I have to get don't. It is not a pleasant experience. Was 29c when I left London at 18.45 today.

29 C is on the lowest edge of what would be called hot in the summer anywhere in America.

Which is fine when your infrastructure is expecting it!

Supposed to hit 35c today and 37c tomorrow which is far too hot for a country where that is normally an exception... We haven't had rain here in about a month now!!

yes, THAT's HOT! And with no rain you get no evaporative cooling from soil and vegetation. Definitely in a bad way. remember that if you keep a fan on you, you'll dehydrate, so drink plenty, force it down!

Looking at a weather map of the pressure systems in Europe, it looks like the reason for no rain is you've got winds that funnel along spain and germany before crossing the channel to BG, so are not picking up water from the ocean. But Spain is frickin' HOT right now.

dude that's 26 IN my house at night, outside its 36-39. Mad and with 80 % humidity.  Mad luckily the walls of my house are about 3 ft thick and there is a 10 degree difference between inside and the surface of Venus outside.

{{Been bloody lovely here to be honest, warm without boiling you, low winds, but enough of an occasional breeze to cool, and on and off every few days intermittent showers of gentle warm refreshing rain that dont last long but keep everything green and growing and the reservoirs topped up. Been pretty much a perfect summer- obviously I'm hating every minute of it Mad  }}
