What's fairly remarkable (apart from the very high maxima) at Lytton is the relatively low overnight minima of 20-21 C, yielding a diurnal range of around 28 degrees.

I have travelled a fair bit of Ireland and have often came across interesting terrain and thought to myself, geez - a weather station here would capture some serious heat/cold depending on the time of year.
We now have four weeks of nearly continuous heat with that one day interruption, and an average high of 37 C for the period June 17 to July 15, no doubt to be extended several more days as the current situation is static. We had bad air quality from forest fire smoke yesterday but it has cleared up considerably with a southeast wind today coming in from less affected regions.
With the new format, I am experimenting a bit with bold and italic type to see if I can create them (no taskbar evident now).
okay so to get bold or italic, type control-b, the bracket approach either [b] or <b> don't work. italic same (control i)
This page has some analysis of the severe rainfall and flooding in China's Henan province this week. The city of Zhengzhou has a population of 12 million and an average annual rainfall of 640mm. (This is less than Dublin's average of 758mm.) Zhengzhou rainfall over 72 hours (17-20 July): 617mm. This included one spell of over 200mm in one hour - which would be roughly 3 months of rain in Dublin.

Big dust devil in Bolivia.
Insane thunderstorms and hail in Italy today.

Rain fell for several hours at the summit of Greenland's ice sheet last weekend for the first time in recorded history, as temperatures rose above freezing.
Scientists confirmed rain was observed at Greenland's Summit Station, which is located 10,551ft/ 3216 Metres above sea level.
Along with the first recorded report of rain at the summit on Sunday, the Arctic research station saw above-freezing temperatures for more than nine hours - the third time in less than a decade and the fourth time in history, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center.
Eureka moment !! Problem solved 🤣
