After reading about the hot temperatures in Argentina and Brazil and how people cope in such conditions, I was just interested to find out what the forum members record summer low temperatures are and how they felt and dealt with such conditions!

York, England - not too sure, I can't find any details but I'd guess around 20C, maybe slightly higher.

The record UK low was set in Guernsey in August 2003. The minimum was 23.7C, I believe the high that day was 34C.

Flaming Galah mentioned Portsmouth recorded a similar temperature probably the same night. I imagine its possibly a record for the mainland.

Anyway I'd be happy to hear other people's experiences!

Don't know the all-time records, but 21.6C is the highest low in Turku for the last 10 years. For the whole country, the highest that I could find was 23.2C.

NWS says 87 F/30.5 C on July 7, 1934 but I find that number very suspect. Highest I've ever personally experienced here is around 75 F/24 C.

The official warmest in the UK is 23.9C in somewhere like Brighton. The London Weather Centre recorded 24.0C in August 1990 though.
