I have been keeping an eye on the weather and see that it has been very hot back home.
I already posted at the end of last week that it was Too Hot Today in Shanghai.
The weather has remained hot here, but the heat has also moved into California.
In the newspaper this morning there was an article saying that Wednesday was the third hottest day in Shanghai weather history. The temperature was 40.3 degrees Celsius which is 104.5 degrees Fahrenheit.
Today the forecast temperature is lower. I checked the temperatures at 10:24 this morning here in Shanghai and the current temperature was 99 degrees.
However the RealFeel or heat index was 120 degrees.
So, is it cooler at home?
So, it was a degree higher in absolute temperature, but felt 23 degrees cooler than here in Shanghai.
You can see in the forecast that Thursday and Friday have a forecast high of 105 degrees, but again the heat index is basically the same.
It was definitely cooler back home 🙂
During lunch however a big thunderstorm popped up nearby and it started to really rain.
The wet pavement was nice as I was able to get a good reflection picture of the camel that is in front of the hotel.
The temperatures on AccuWeather.com have not come down for Shanghai, but since it is such a big city there can be a big temperature difference across the city.
I am sure that the heat will be back very soon. In fact I may go check and see once I get done posting this 🙂
I have also just checked the weather at home again. The temperature has already dropped to 75 and will drop into the 60’s overnight. Again, it is much cooler at home.
