All-time July National Heat Records Fall on Three Continents

By: Jeff Masters , 4:56 PM GMT on July 03, 2015

Brutally hot conditions fried portions of three continents during the first three days of July, and four nations have already set all-time July national heat records this month: the Netherlands, the U.K., Thailand, and Colombia. Below is a break-down of the July national heat records set so far this month, courtesy of weather records researcher Maximiliano Herrera.

Europe
The temperature in Maastricht, the Netherlands, hit 100.8°F (38.2°C) on July 2, setting an all-time July heat record for the nation. According to data from the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute, only two other hotter temperatures have been recorded in the nation: 101.5°F (38.6°C), on August 23, 1944 at Warnsveld, and 101.1°F (38.4°C), on June 27, 1947 at Maastricht. Thanks go to wunderground member cRRKampen for this info. According to to weather records researcher Maximiliano Herrera, three stations in the Netherlands set all-time (any-day) highs Thursday:

Volkel (Netherlands), 36.9°C
Twenthe (Netherlands), 36.1°C
Leeuwarden (Netherlands), 34.0°C

Mr. Herrera notes that the Netherlands' all-time hottest temperature in 1944 was surely beaten on July 2, 2015, but all stations in the warmest area were closed many years ago. For example, the city of Maastricht itself, where Thursday's near-record 100.8°F (38.2°C) was recorded at the airport, is slightly warmer in its downtown (perhaps by 1°C) than at the airport station (which is more elevated), but the town station doesn't exist any longer. He also pointed out that Belgium's official all-time hottest temperature is 101.8°F (38.8°C), measured on June 27, 1947. However, according to the Belgian Meteorological Agency, RMI, this value was likely 2.2°C too high, due to improper measurement techniques. If we make this correction, Belgium's all-time hottest temperature was beaten on Thursday, as well as during the 2003 and 2006 heat waves. And in Paris, which measured its 2nd hottest temperature in its history on July 1 (39.7°C), the Paris Observatory had its grass watered (as it should be), but the grass was never watered for the record value of 40.4°C of 1947. This could have been the difference between the two measurements.

London's Heathrow Airport hit 98.1°F (36.7°C) on July 1, setting an all-time July heat record for the UK. Previous record: 97.7°F (36.5°C) in Wisley on July 19, 2006.

Asia
On July 2, the mercury hit 105.8°F (41.0°C) at Kamalasai, Thailand, setting a mark for the hottest July temperature ever recorded in that nation. Previous record: 104.4°F (40.2°C) at Uttaradit on July 12, 1977. Approximately half of all the reporting stations in Thailand set their all-time July monthly heat records on July 1 or July 2 this year. UPDATE: Today (Friday, July 3), Kamalasai, Thailand bested yesterday's July record with a reading of 106°F (41.1°C).

South America
On July 1, Urumitia, Colombia beat that nation's all-time July national heat record, with a 108°F (42.2°C) reading. Urumitia also set Colombia's all-time June heat record last week on June 27, with a 107.6°F (42.0°C) mark.

The heat continued in all these places on Friday. In Europe, the hottest temperatures were over Central France, where Clermont Ferrand hit 104°F (40°C). Meteo France has a color-coded map of current temperatures that show the heat wave in excellent detail. The most intense heat will shift eastwards over Germany and Luxembourg on Saturday and Sunday, into Poland and Southeast Europe on Monday, then over Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Liechtenstein on Tuesday. High temperatures close to the highest values ever measured can be expected in all these locations. From wunderground's extremes page, we can see that these all-time national heat records may be challenged:

France's all-time hottest temperature is 111.4°F (44.1°C), measured on August 12, 2003 at Conqueyrac and Saint-Christol-Les-Ales Gard Department.

Germany's all-time hottest temperature is 104.5°F (40.3°C), measured on August 8, 2003 at Perl-Nennig, Saarland State.

Switzerland's all-time hottest temperature is 106.7°F (41.5°C), measured on August 11, 2003 at Grono.

Luxembourg's all-time hottest temperature is 104.9°F (40.5°C), measured on August 8, 2003 at Remich.

Poland's all-time hottest temperature is 104.4°F (40.2°C), measured on July 29, 1921 at Proszkow.

Austria's all-time hottest temperature is 104.9°F (40.5°C), measured on August 8, 2013 at Bad Deutsch-Altenburg.

Liechtenstein's all-time hottest temperature is 99.3°F (37.4°C), measured on August 13, 2003 at Ruggel.

Four tropical cyclones in the Pacific
Typhoon Watches continue in the Northern Mariana Islands on Guam and nearby Rota, Saipan, and Tinian islands for Tropical Storm Chan-hom, which is expected to pass through the islands Saturday evening (U.S. EDT time) as an intensifying Category 1 storm. Chan-hom had unexpected troubles on Friday, when it interacted with tropical disturbance 94W to its west. The upper-level outflow from 94W created high wind shear over Chan-hom, which tore away most of the typhoon's heavy thunderstorms and exposed the low-level circulation to view. Dan Lindsey of NOAA/CIRA put together an impressive closeup view of Chan-Hom's evolution on Friday from the Himawari-8 satellite's 0.5 km visible 2.5-min imagery. Here is a link to all the Himawari-8 satellite imagery.

The Philippines are watching Tropical Storm Linfa, which is expected to hit the northern island of Luzon over the weekend at tropical storm strength.

Newly-formed Tropical Depression Eleven is in the Marshall Islands, where it has already caused considerable trouble. According to hurricane scientist Mark Lander of the University of Guam, tropical cyclones in the Marshall Islands occur almost exclusively during El Niño years. So far this year, three tropical cyclones have caused damaging sea inundation in the islands. According to a source of his on Majuro Island:

"We [Majuro] got the weaker side.  Even so, this was the strongest West Wind I have seen here in about 18 years.  And believe it or not, it was not that strong [~25 G40 mph], just steady.  I see 2 fishing boats aground; another one partially sunk already, with a small and large yacht on the beach, and many power boats a mess. The Uliga dock area was a circus all day.  Also add lots of erosion, you can see the Mobil Oil fuel lines exposed. All the mooring failures for boats on the beach so far was due to chafing as we have had happy weather for years and I think few were ready.  If a storm of this nature had hit at King Tides, we would have had a national emergency."

Two areas of disturbed weather in the Central Pacific east-southeast of the Hawaiian Islands, Invest 95E and Invest 96E, are moving west-northwest towards Hawaii. In their 8 am EDT Friday Tropical Weather Outlook, NHC gave 95E and 96E 5-day odds of development of 50% and 70%, respectively. 96E, the disturbance farther from Hawaii, may pose a long-range threat to Hawaii, as the Friday morning runs of the GFS and European models showed the storm coming close to the islands on Friday, July 10.

In the South Pacific, a rare winter tropical cyclone, Raquel, is drenching the Solomon Islands.

Mercifully, the Atlantic remains quiet, with none of the reliable tropical cyclone genesis models showing anything developing over the next five days.

Have a great holiday weekend, everyone! I'll be back by Monday morning at the latest with a new post.

Thanks, Dakster. I read the whole article, and got the feeling that while overall the numbers aren't great, the temperature, snowfall and albedo details were not bad at all.

W00t! Some seriously nifty outflow winds goin' right now. Nothing on radar, no warnings, if we're getting those here then those storms to the north must have been doozies. Sure got a pretty lightshow. Feels like pushing up to 50 mph top speed. Exciting, like a small town carny roller coaster I _almost_ trust.

Just go to the Nexrad radar and chose "Total Precipitation" on the bottom of the radar image. It looks like this for Orlando -



The color gradations, once it gets into the red, are almost impossible for my color blind eyes to distinguish. I think Scott lives in or near Apopka. It's at the top of the image. There's a small area of red there but I can't tell if it's for 3.0 to 4.0 inches or the reds up to 5.0 to 6.0 inches. I think it's 4.0 to 5.0, the next one up from orange but you'll have to decide. Whatever it is, it's a very small area, along with another area just to the SW of Apopka. Otherwise, the majority of the Orlando area got less than half an inch, some got nothing, while others got into the 1.0 to 1.5 inch range. It does show that reality at Scott's house doesn't have anything to do with reality in the rest of the area.

No, he could certainly be telling the truth, there are areas where rainfall estimates are 4-6 inches and even 6-8 north and NE of Orlando in the general area he said he lives in, and that's with the old rainfall estimation technique, which is underestimating a bit over official stations. It's possible some pockets could have seen 2-3 inches more than he did.

It also credits the NWS -

Weather Data | GFS (Global Forecast System)
NCEP / National Weather Service / NOAA

I assume that's where it pulls temperatures since they also have about a three hour time lag. But, I still don't have a clue where temperatures in Siberia come from. Does the NWS carry temperatures from Siberia? If not, where's the data source? I wish there was a little more detail than what I find in a hard to read list of "credits". I've seen many people posting pictures from nullschool as if it's real time data when it's not. Most of what's on there is another way to look at the GFS.

East Pacific: 95E is producing disorganized convective activity and the environment appears that it will no longer support it developing into a tropical cyclone. 96E is producing organizing convective activity and the environment will become more supportive for tropical cyclone development over the next few days.

West Pacific. TS Chan-hom is starting to get better organized and it is set on for a continued organizational trend for the next 5 days and to peak at 140mph typhoon. TS Nangka is getting more organized as well and is on the verge of becoming a Typhoon and will continue its trend as well. TS Linfa is getting more organized temporarily and will get less organized over the next few days and become post-tropical.

Insane storm here in Cape Coral (SW FL) for the past hour. In the six years I've been here I've never seen a rainy season like this one, so far. Even the eternal "hole in the sky" over the nearby Caloosahatchee has not been able to divert the rain away from me this year. Usually my garden patch doesn't start its rainy season until the last week of June, but this year I started getting regular rain the very first week of June. Tonight, though, is crazy.

BTW, just returned from July 4th get-together 70 miles north up at Casey Key, where it's just dry as a bone. Clearly parts of So. FL keep getting rain and other parts keep Not getting rain!

Anyway, I'd wanted to save up until I could afford a serious personal weather station, but curiosity over how much rain is really falling each day is just too much -- I'll snag a cheap-o rain gauge next weekend and get it installed.

Now I just need to move where it rains like this for most of the year! ;-)


Well it's no mistake you're noticing excessive rain. Southwest Florida has really gotten smacked lately, there have been severe thunderstorms in Ft. Myers/Lee county for several days in a row with very heavy totals, and rainfall accumulations show about 15-20 inches over the past month, so yeah it's been busy down there!

Average rainfall in Ft. Myers and Lee county area in June through September is around 10 inches per month, so the rainy season is very dramatic down there, but even so far it's been quite a bit over the average, about 50-100% above an already high average.

Nothing in the ATL, not even a weak tropical wave that could bring some rain...

Why is it that every radar image from Patrap seems to go at supersonic speed? It is perhaps because he's using a .05 second delay like this?

That one directly west just yielded a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Fernley. Fernley's been getting hammered a lot, hence our full ditches. :) It's the Yerington storm that was looking ominous an hour ago, but unless (like yesterday's weather) these storms are preceded by days of broken storms and virga, pumping up the PW numbers, they just crumple like a Yugo at Rattlesnake Raceway.
There are two cells that are the subject of a flash flood warning, one over Fernley and the other near Silver Springs, my old stomping grounds. The one over Silver Springs has a small chance of getting to you but I think it goes north of Fallon. The Fernley storm is tracking east along I-80 and has no chance of getting to Fallon. The Yerington storm is now a Yugo. You should at least get some nice outflow winds, keeping things cool.

Just looking for a credible source of the observation, Bob-no thanks necessary. The "nice work" was from your link, not me.
I have been trying to figure out where nullschool gets temperatures. It looks like it uses NWS data that's several hours old. It shows Eufaula as 28.5 degrees (83.3) when it's really 75.2 degrees [23.94]. I have no idea what the source would be for Siberia unless that also comes from the NWS.

Every day late afternoon (like 5pm - 6pm) we've been getting hammered here in Fort Myers....


Lay off the cocktails and you should be ok...

Anyways, just had a nice little cluster of earthquakes here. Looks like a 4.6, 4.7, and 4.8. Note to mother earth - please stop counting up now...

My phone went crazy and kept saying we were having 5.1 and 5.2s. I can feel those. I was not able to feel these.

That cell just going north of Yerington is headed toward you but it's starting to weaken. I'll be surprised if it can hold together until it gets to you. There's a cell directly west of you but it's stationary and looks like it's going to rain itself out over desert. I just got off the phone with my brother and he said all the storms missed him today. He was able to turn off the A/C and open all the windows yesterday, so that's not bad for the howling desert in July. :-)

Insane storm here in Cape Coral (SW FL) for the past hour. In the six years I've been here I've never seen a rainy season like this one, so far. Even the eternal "hole in the sky" over the nearby Caloosahatchee has not been able to divert the rain away from me this year. Usually my garden patch doesn't start its rainy season until the last week of June, but this year I started getting regular rain the very first week of June. Tonight, though, is crazy.

BTW, just returned from July 4th get-together 70 miles north up at Casey Key, where it's just dry as a bone. Clearly parts of So. FL keep getting rain and other parts keep Not getting rain!

Anyway, I'd wanted to save up until I could afford a serious personal weather station, but curiosity over how much rain is really falling each day is just too much -- I'll snag a cheap-o rain gauge next weekend and get it installed.

Now I just need to move where it rains like this for most of the year! ;-)

Weather! If it doesn't crumple against the Fallon Storm-Killing Field of Dryness, we've got a lovely storm coming.

Wednesday looks to be another stormy day - it was my tentative travel date to visit Mom, but I'm not stupid. My tires are legal, but not new, and I'm not going to be hitting the road in that weather. Nuh uh.

Nice work.
I have little doubt that those parts of Siberia made 37.1%uFFFDC (98.78%uFFFDF) . That spot is about as far north as Barrow, Alaska. But as arrow says it's pretty far from the sea. How deep is permafrost there ? 2 or 3 hundred meters ?

Thanks again for targeting the spot. I'll make a point to watch it the rest of the fire season.
