20° C in Southern Germany, way too cold for me. I'm hoping for lots of people posting higher degrees so I might feel a little bit warmer....

Edit: AprilHare did you just vote for 0-10???!! ok, um, I won't complain about our tempertatures then ....

About 22 here in the UK today. Much more pleasant than the 30+ (with very high humidity) that we had last week.

Google tells me it's supposed to be 16° C, but I've got my "personal heater" (Antec P182, Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R, C2D E7200, 6x7200RPM HDD) beside me and inside the apartment is usually much warmer than outside so I'd peg the room temp to be around 24° C. The thermostat (on our non-working air-conditioning) agrees with me.

Yes, it was pretty horrible last week, especially at night. British homes don't have air-conditioning, and trying to sleep in that heat and humidity was not very nice.

It's been 40 here on average during the day for several weeks now. It dips down a bit if we get rain, but the rain storms have been few and far between.

And, just fyi, "global warming" is an incorrect term. The proper term for it is "global climate disruption." That means areas globally have unusual and sometimes unusually extreme climate. The idea that the entire globe is just getting warmer is junk science.

You can call it that if you wish, Ricky, but the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - the international body set up by the UN and the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) to monitor climate change - is perfectly happy to call it "global warming" .

Around 10°C here. Pretty cold if you are used to 30-40°C summers.

Cold weather....must be nice. It's been in the 90s here and muggy! But that's much better than a couple weeks-got to about 101.
