Tuesday July 23rd… Dear Diary. The main purpose of this ongoing blog will be to track United States extreme or record temperatures related to climate change. Any reports I see of ETs will be listed below the main topic of the day. I’ll refer to extreme or record temperatures as ETs (not extraterrestrials).😉
New European Heat Wave Day One
Record heat has already begun to be reported under the building heat dome that is and will be responsible for the latest round of European heat, which will be our main topic for the next several days. I’ll report what I see as far as “ETs” go from Europe, usually reposting direct tweeted messages. By the way, if these are in Spanish, French, German or some other language, usually Microsoft has translated the messages into English. Just click on each tweet for details. Readings are in degrees Celsius.
Late this week after extreme warmth has moderated over more southern areas Scandinavia will see the bulk of the European heat:

Rewriting the Record Books?
This latest heat wave may shatter the all-time record in Paris (Parc Montsouris) of 40.4 degrees Celsius (104.7 degrees Fahrenheit) set on July 28, 1947. Thursday offers the highest chance for this record to be topped.
Other locations in France and northern Spain are expected to top 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) through Thursday.
Here are “ET” European reports from Monday. What’s so alarming and eye opening is that most are above 40°C:
I’ll be adding more European reports as Monday rolls by. Check I. from to to time to see what I’ve added once it crosses my radar.
Here is more climate and weather news from Tuesday:
(As usual, this will be a fluid post in which more information gets added during the day as it crosses my radar, crediting all who have put it on-line. Items will be archived on this site for posterity. In most instances click on the pictures of each tweet to see each article.)
Here is another warm ET from Alaska:
