After 16 consecutive days with daily high temperatures between -12ºC and -18ºC, and daily lows between -15ºC and -24ºC, a blast of hot air is now passing over us from the south west. For about 12 hours we are told we may see temperatures as high as -6ºC before returning to less than -12ºC for the rest of the week.
Though the sun rises at 0831 and sets at 1543, the days are getting perceptibly longer.
Roll on summer.
We’re having a heat wave
A tropical heat wave
The temperature’s rising
It isn’t surprising …
In winter we spend most of our time in heated spaces at around +20ºC. In summer we cool our spaces to about 22-24ºC. We are after all, evolved for tropical climates.
If only the global warming fantasy were true (which it isn’t).
