The Guardian had this story today about the wet conditions in the US Mid-West:
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/jun/03/so-much-land-under-so-much-water-extreme-flooding-is-drowning-parts-of-the-midwest

Here, in Flanders, after a dry 2017, a very dry 2018, 2019 has again been dry so far. And warm, though May was the first month below the average since March 2018.

Central Scotland has been depressing over the last few weeks, it’s rained a lot, we had 3 days there where is rained for 3 days solid, it’s bloody 2 weeks away from the summer solstice and you’d think it was March

When I cycled around Scotland in 1979 there was rain 17 days in a row. Beautiful though.

August. Summer in most of the northern hemisphere at least!

It’s been raining every day here for what seems like forever. At this point I’d just take a couple of dry days let alone sunny, warm weather. Last years hot summer seems a long time ago!

We are getting April and March weather this week. Pretty grim but it wont last. June is normally a heatwave month.

This week is going to be a bloodbath in western Europe, the +25 isotherm at 850 hPa going as north as the channel and taking almost all France is an unseen, local models see up to +30 at 850 hPa in southern France, something that would be very extreme and close to records also in southern Spain that is usually the hottest are due to vicinity to the Sahara, and up to +28 at 850 hPa in NW Italy where at the sounding site of Levaldigi the all time record is +25,2°C registered only two years ago (the 3rd of august).

Will be interestesting (for who like data and statistics, a nightmare for who has to endure) to see what is going to happen at the ground level, with the right circunstamces i can see temperatures exceeding 45°C in southern French and 40°C in nothern French and nothern Italy meaning that a lot of record are up for grabs, very rare for june considering that almost everywhere the all time records are spreaded between july and august and especially between the second half of july and the first hal of august that usually are the hottest part of the european summer.

Pretty hot today already. Over 36 °C in Chamonix, which is at 1000 m elevetion.

34 °C Tmax here near Antwerp, and incredibly humid (dewpoint temperatures of around 22 °C). Wind direction is changing though, and we'll get some relief from the NW the next days. No rain in sight - 2018 on repeat?

We had 37 °C in Heidelberg, south-west Germany today. Well, it's still 36 so no necessity to speak about the past. The temperature is not expected to drop below 30 until 11 pm. Luckily, this should be the hottest day of this particular heat wave, although it will stay in the 30s for the next days.
Hard to believe that our max temperature today will be the lowest night temperature in Basra, Iraq tonight. They had 50 °C today.

Central Scotland has been roasting the last few days, I've been out cycling the last 2 nights and its safe to say you wont be seeing me anytime soon in the Alps, The Pyrenees, or anywhere really south of London that's warm....cycling in hot weather isn't for me...if I ever go a cycling holiday it will be to Norway

All time high ... sweaty!
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48795264
France has hit its highest ever recorded temperature - 44.3C (111.7F) - amid a heatwave in Europe that has claimed several lives.

The new record was measured in the southern town of Carpentras. The previous record was 44.1C during a heatwave in 2003 that killed thousands.

45,9 °C à Gallargues-le-Montueux (30)
45,4 °C à Villevieille (30)
45,1 °C à Marsillargues (34)
44,6 °C à Saint-Chamas (13)
44,5 °C à Varages (83)

Des valeurs exceptionnelles

Dans ce flux du sud saharien, de nombreuses villes de France ont subi vendredi des températures exceptionnelles, jamais mesurée tous mois confondus.

Quelques records absolus ce vendredi (non exhaustif):

42,5 °C à Montpellier aéroport (34) (station ouverte en 1946). Ancien record : 37,7 °C le 04/08/2017;
42,4 °C à Perpignan (66), ouverte en 1924,. Ancien record absolu : 40,5 °C le 07/07/1982;
42 °C à Aix-en-Provence (13), ouverte en 1955. Ancien record : 40,2 °C le 26/07/1983;
40,9 °C à Aigues-Mortes (30), ouverte en 1959. Ancien record : 38,9 °C le 21/06/2003;
29,9 °C au Mont Aigoual (30, 1567m), ouverte en 1896. Ancien record : 29,4 °C le 09/08/1923;
39,7 °C à Beziers-Vias (34), ouverte en 1994. Ancien record : 39,1 °C du 04/08/2018.


Notice the almost 5°C carnage in Montpellier.

Here the real problem now are the dew point and humidity, yesterday around mid day started to blow the wind from NE and in some hours the dew point went from 15°C to 24°C, and in a lesser extent the exceptional night temperatures that make impossible to "refresh" the houses during the night even if you open everything possible.

Yeah, sticky conditions and warm nights, those are the real pain-in-the-a**. A week or so ago, they predicted some of that super-warm 850 hPa air would be here, meaning Tmin of 25 °C and dew points of 23-24 °C. Luckily, we got a breeze from the North Sea instead, with ideal summer conditions (Tmax of 26-27 °C, dew points and Tmin around 12 °C). Warmer today and tomorrow, but then turning to fairly normal. Still no precipitation foreseen though, that's becoming a worry (again).

Here usually during heat waves is dry with dew points below 10°C and decent minimun temperatures around or below 20°C if not cloudy or windy, but this year we come from a 200+ mm May that ended with submerged fields and a lot of locally produced moist from evaporation in the first half of june then in the last two weeks with the high pressure costantly over western Europe we had winds blowing from NE that took humidity from the Adriatic sea and the Padanian hell (in Pianura Padana is terrible the summer due to humidity and also night heat forced by urbanization and heat islands) so in the end since the beginning of the month only three days the dew point was below 15°C and in a lot of cases was around 20°C with the exceptional peak of 24°C two days ago.

Situations with high humidity and dew points over 20°C are instead very common when there is perturbed weather and rain because nowadays cool breaks have become very rare during the summer with the warming trend of recent decades, during 2014 summer when there was rain almost every day was terrible in that regard, i don't like heat in general but i prefer to have 40°C with 10% of humidity rather than 28°C with 80% and rain.

Anyway the next days should be better, yesterday evening the wind stopped and we lost a dozen of degrees in dew point (now is 11°C) and this morning the minimun temperature was below 20°C (yesterday was 25,4°C, one of the highest since i record weather data at my home), the next "problematic" day should be the 3rd of july when there is risk of rain with 850 hPa temperatures still around 20°C so pontentially a sauna day.

Tomorrow here there will be the first real cool break since the end of may, even if will be something really fast (only tomorrow is expected a maximum temperature below the average), the effects after so much warm accumulation risks to be destructive with up to 350 mm forecasted over the Arcipelago, something unbelievable considering that some islands like Pianosa usually have only 250/300 mm of rain per year.
