Hot today

Quote of the day, from today's editorial of The Conversation newsletter:
"It's going to be hot today. The sort of hot that even people from other countries actually count as hot".
1st July turned out to be the hottest day in Leicestershire for 147 years!

[Note added 20 July 2018: Unfortunately the Leicester Mercury link no longer works – perhaps it will be reinstated at some point. Meanwhile, the BBC News article of 1 July 2015 under the heading Hottest July day ever recorded in UK is relevant and interesting, too.]
