For the UK and or London - rounded down or up where appropriate, five out of the last six summers have seen temperatures reach between 34-37C.


37C was most recently officially recorded in 2015, (an unofficial temperature posting on another website of someone recording 37C in 2018 was recorded).


Temps of 35C were seen in 2017 and 36C in 2018.


Temps of well over 34C were recorded in 2013 and 2016.


The original posting stands.

A quick look at these data reveals this claim to be false, even accounting for recent warm summers.

For this claim to be accepted we would need to see data over the last 30 years showing the majority of summers reaching 35°C or higher in London itself--not just the last couple of years, not rounded, and not cherry-picking arbitrary places in the UK as desired. Until then it seems like yet another English poster exaggerating about their weather.

The average annual max for Heathrow 81-10 is 31.7c, and for the last 30 years it is 32.2c.

I choose London, as Vancouver winters are way too freaking wet, and their summers are pretty close precip wise

London is drier in winter and cloudier in summer, which is good. But Vancouver isn't bad too. There is an A vs B+ battle.
