Thats actually not too bad. 14-16C during the day and good sleeping at night.
Humidity is high. I think I could live with this during winter

Think of some of our members.! The Half and Gibbler can tell us more.
New Yorkers swelter in 'dangerous' heatwave


A state of emergency has been declared in New York where a heatwave has brought misery to the city.

Temperatures have hit 38C (101F) with humidity making it feel even hotter. The city's streets are stifling, and Subway passengers sweated on platforms before stepping gratefully into air-conditioned trains.

New York has not experienced such a heatwave, described as "extremely dangerous", since July 1999.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared the first official heat emergency in the city's history and the scorching temperatures are expected to continue. He has ordered city swimming pools to stay open late.

Nearly 400 special cooling centres have been opened where passers-by can escape the heat and receive cold drinks and medical aid.

An extreme weather front has caused more than 100 deaths over the last week as it drifted across the US from California to the East Coast.

Officials are desperate to avoid a repeat of the crippling blackouts suffered in Queens two weeks ago.

The lights on the Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building have been dimmed so as not to overburden power supplies, and offices have been told to turn down their air-conditioning.

Almost like Texas on a warm summers day.
I can remember standing out in torrential rain at 96F in shorts ,and being dry 2 min after rain finished. I guess its not easy for people who dont have air conditioning and we all dont want anyone to suffer
cheers
