"Brazil is bracing for a heat wave that could see temperatures rise to 113 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees Celsius) during the Southern Hemisphere's final days of winter. That temperature would reportedly break a record in the country -- not just for winter, but for any time of year."
China set 21 records on Sept 4.
Record heat in Mongolia and Thailand.
India experienced the “hottest and driest” August “since national records began more than a century ago.”
The Philippines government has capped rice prices due to prices increases resulting from “extreme weather such as floods and heat waves.”
THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT: Heat will be an issue for a lot of territory this week. Some moisture areas will shift focus from the West to the Northern Rockies and Plains, & the tropics remain quite active. Let’s discuss these bullets.

Lotta home explosions 🏡💥 all across the country during the summer of the #HeatDome. 🤔 👉 https://www.newschannel5.com/news/person-dead-after-propane-tank-incident-at-home-in-williamson-county
And it’s only gonna get hotter 🥵 folks!
If you think you might be crazy to buy a house with gas heating and/or cooking, you are. ✅ Any other questions?
Sad but true. It was discussed a lot during the #HeatDome 2 summers ago.
My building (a low-rise walkup in East Van) certainly wasn't built with heat or cold in mind. It's uncomfortably hot in summer and we need space heaters in winter to keep it liveable if the temperature drops too fast.
#HeatDome Here is the official hoped for break in our week long Excessive Heat event. No one in my family believes this will actually happen, but we're hoping it will.
I can see the tall storm clouds at the Wisconsin border and, listening carefully, I can hear thunder as well. The storms seems to be stalling before heading too far south though. When will the relief from this heat come?! We had a pretty sunset though, I'll grant you that.
#heatdome #ilwx #storms #summer
My wife is crestfallen by the trauma of the #HeatDome - no animal presence, no cars, no people, just 121° Heat index aka 49.x°C, and frankly, I cant comfort her or reframe it or etc
We arent doing shit about our own fucking extinction & until the oligarchs are slayed, that isnt changing.
I cant even begin to fucking absorb/digest/process it.
We are in a Climate War for our lives & the lives of thousands of species & most people pretend otherwise.
Mississippi is among the states feeling effects from the #Midwest’s sweltering #heatdome this week. On Thursday, the National Weather Service in Jackson, Miss., reported a #heatwave in central and southern parts of the state, with highs approaching all-time heat records of 104 to 107 °F.
I guess I need to water the #garden... The bottoms of the tomato plants are drying out. Most of the tomatoes harvested. Not sure if they will even put on any more blossoms? 🤔 The rest of the garden could really use a 💧💦🌊🌧🌦🌩💧🌊🪣🚿💦 since we are still stuck in this #HeatDome.
Just took my dog on a walk cuz it’s the coolest it’s been in 15 hours.
The current temp is 97°F with a #Heat index of 105°F at 1:30 AM ET.
My mother-effing elbows are hot ffs.
Current warming above the preindustrial average: +1.28°C
June 2023: +1.4°C
July 2023: +1.54°C
We are on track to reach +1.5°C of warming by about 2030 and +2°C by about 2050.
What will the heat domes look like then?
Irre Luftmasse auch in den USA unter dem mächtigen Höhenhoch #heatdome.
Rote Ü25er bis hoch an die Great Lakes. Und das sind NICHT die Temperaturen, sondern die Taupunkte. Unerträgliche Schwüle, dort auch viele Großstädte. /LD
#WhiskerWednesday under a ☀️🥵#HeatDome in the #MidWest is going to be horrible. The feel like temp is going to be 115° with humidity in 60%-80% . My #Catio will be closed in about 20 minutes due to #ExessiveHeat. I don't like being stuck inside all day, especially since all the drapes are closed 😿. But mom butler staff says it's not safe outside, so I must put up with it.
"[The #HeatDome] will bring more scorching temperatures to Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, and most of the Balkan peninsula. Temperatures will push back into close to 45 °C in parts of the Iberian peninsula, low 40s in southern France and North-cental Italy, and into high 30s to low 40s across south-central Balkans."
@w7voa I took a look. Looks like it is for wedneday. Of you tap on the alert you will see a start time. Parts of WI could see triple digits, and heat index values will most certainly be in the triple digits.
If you see a mental health provider or are a provider, be sure to feel free to share the impact of #ClimateChange & #HeatDome on mental health, stroke risk, cognitive dysfunction, and domestic violence with patients and other providers alike.
Here is a resource thread and links for you:
This is the precipitation forecast for the continental U.S. over the next 5 days.
The middle of the country will see nary a drop of rain as the high pressure heat dome keeps moisture laden winds and currents away.
This is not normal. Or is this the new normal?
Extreme heat returns to Europe as well this week. Even Greenland.
Temperatures close to 45 °C in parts of the Iberian peninsula, low 40s in southern France and North-central Italy, and high 30s to low 40s across south-central Balkans.
No, this is not normal. Or is this the new normal?
Filling the pool 🏝 for the toasty ducks 🦆🦆🦆so they can make it through this #heatdome.
MFers wont give up fossil fuels but here some of us are moving underground for weeks at a time cuz something something heat dome.
Others more pressingly diving into the fucking ocean and being airlifted from North Woods to survive.
No longer a Tale of Two Cities. Try a Tale of Parallel Realities and Anti-realities.
"This expansion of the #HeatDome may be the most wide-reaching of the summer. By early in the coming workweek, most of the Lower 48 is forecast to see temperatures well above normal, with the West being the one exception."
“It doesn’t take a lot of auditing to see how the bill will get so steep, so fast. The total cost of the 2016 #FortMcMurray fire: $9 billion. The all-in price tag of B.C.’s 2021 #HeatDome, #wildfires, #floods and #landslide, all linked to warming: up to $17 billion. Cleanup and repair after #HurricaneFiona, which bulldozed #AtlanticCanada last year: $3 billion.”
“the #HeatDome was a foreshock of the world to come, with impacts both immediate and long-lasting. Yet it occurred in a world that has only warmed, on average, about 1.2 degrees since 1850. We’re now racing to 1.5 degrees and are likely to cross that threshold by the mid-2030s.”
#fossilfuels companies that extracted oil, coal and gas that have powered our planet for decades... By 2013... just 90 companies contributed 2/3rds of the world’s industrial emissions.
Richard Heede could even pinpoint the share of those emissions for which companies existing today are responsible.
A half hour later at 5:45 am the sky is brightening but the skyscape is changing rapidly as clouds begin dissipating and more clear blue sky is showing. This iPhone photo is from the same spot in my #Phoenix backyard as the photo in the first post, looking west. Instead of joy at the skies clearing, this is a sunrise photo of disappointment. Read my description in the first post. Over 29 days now of daily highs over 110°, y’all. #HeatWave #HeatDome #ClimateChange #Sunrise #Phoenix
My new image of a great sunrise is clouds spanning the sky over my home in scorched Phoenix, Arizona. We have a possibility of rain today and for the next few days. It could be a devastating monsoon with wind and flash flooding and much damage. Yet the prospect that we could see a daily high under 110° after 29 days over 110° is a better outcome after a record-breaking heat wave. #HeatWave #HeatDome #ClimateChange #Phoenix #Sunrise #Skyscape #Clouds
"The relentless sun -- it hurts"

"Mosby and her team aren’t the only ones working to protect Arizona’s vulnerable wildlife as the unwavering heat continues to torment animals and humans alike.
"To help the state’s animals survive the #ExtremeWeather, the Arizona Game and Fish Department has been bringing water to the wild to help keep animals hydrated.
"The agency deploys water shipments on trucks and helicopters to man-made catchments across Arizona – some capable of holding up to 10,000 gallons of water, according to habitat planning program manager Joseph Currie.
"When Arizona hit 110 degrees 27 days ago, water gauges showed that usage exploded, Currie said.
"The watering holes were originally created for #quail and #doves to increase hunting population numbers, but newer catchments grew in size over the years as the agency found that more animals needed a drink.
"#Droughts and #HeatWaves are occurring more often and becoming more intense across the nation – particularly in the West and Southwest – creating dangerous conditions and affecting water supplies for wildlife, according to the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
"The program is currently funded by a combination of federal funds and fund-raising efforts. But 'if it keeps heating up and keeps drying out, then of course costs are going to increase,' Currie said."
@RichardJMurphy Politicians will burn through tonnes of fuel flying in private jets to do nothing after the photo shoots have ended.
As someone who is living within the Southern Europe heat dome for the past two weeks it feels like I'm in a dehydrator set at over 40C (104F) night and day. We are experiencing main power lines melting and towns and cities without power for days. And we're told next year we'll be worse because of el ninio.
Here in Phoenix we are expected to continue extreme heat at least until Sunday next week July 30. This would make an entire month of extreme heat. It’s 108° as of 8:30 pm at my home. Worried about continuing heat-triggered migraines for my son and I. Drew on 9th day migraines. I began one today. Air is stagnant in this heat dome. #HeatDome #HeatWave #ExtremeHeat #Phoenix #USHottestCity
"#Oil and #gas companies in West #Texas released hundreds of tons of toxic gasses into the air last week as a record-breaking 👉#heatwave drove pressure inside #pipelines and compressors to dangerously high levels.👈
“The magnitude of these events in terms of the #temperatures that are being forecast and the length of time is very, very, very worrisome. It’s an absolute crisis.”

"Record #global ocean heating has invaded Florida with a vengeance.
"Water temperatures in the mid-90s (mid-30s Celsius) are threatening delicate coral reefs, depriving swimmers of cooling dips and adding a bit more ick to the Sunshine State's already oppressive summer weather. Forecasters are warning of temperatures that with humidity will feel like 110 degrees (43 degrees Celsius) by week's end.
Repeated upper level troughs will likely keep the Southwest #HeatDome from having strong impacts in the Pacific Northwest, positioning the jet stream between the two weather features for onshore flow and fairly benign summer conditions in Washington and Oregon.
This does favor thunderstorm activity in interior British Columbia, though, which will likely start some fires.
Map description in alt-text.
"The #HeatDome is likely to expand as it strengthens in the coming days, possibly spreading as far north-east as central #Europe and bringing highs of more than 30C to parts of the continent each day. #Spain will be particularly badly affected and is likely to hit the low- to mid-40s celsius daily, particularly across southern regions."
Oregon County Sues BP, Chevron, Shell, Exxon for $51B Climate Damages
Multnomah County, which includes Portland, sued 17 companies, including Shell, Exxon Mobil, Chevron, BP ... blaming them and seeking $51 billion in damages for the deadly 2021 Pacific Northwest heat wave that killed about 800 people.
#heatwave "But forecasters are warning that there is a more dangerous aspect to this heat wave, and one that is becoming more common because of the climate crisis: overnight temperatures are not cooling down enough, offering little reprieve from the oppressive heat — particularly for people who don’t have access to air conditioning." #TXwx #LAwx #heatdome #climate https://www.cnn.com/2023/06/27/weather/texas-heat-wave-nighttime-temperatures-climate/index.html
