    The method I vaguely recall from Post Secondary Tech School:

    Celsius to Fahrenheit: (Deg C x 9/5) + 32

    Fahrenheit to Celsius: (Deg F-32) x 5/9

    .....or you just download Josh Madison's Unit Converter

    https://joshmadison.com/convert-for-windows/

    **Or, if you have a Scientific Calculator with SOLVER mode, you can load the formulas up, after which you just plug in the known value, and it will do all the heavy lifting

    Easy to do in your head.
    Um - not in my head.....

    Definitely not typical, and well above the seasonal averages, hopefully it doesn't drag on too long!! I woke up on the couch @ 2:00 AM last night SOAKED, went and pounded back a couple glasses of water, and sat down at my desktop PC, it was still 26 Deg C (78.8 F), which would be above what would be a normal daytime high around here. And when I got up @ 6:30, it was still 23 Deg C (73.4 F).
    Seems like a day here or there is tolerable, but when you string a good number of consecutive days together, the buildings get heat-soaked, andalong with the overnight highs, the interior temps get way out of hand. it's shortly after 6:00 PM here, and the temp inside my house ATM is 32.8 Deg C (91 F)

    Although the BC Okanagan is a much warmer climate than where I'm at, I still feel for them, with temps into the 40's (40 Deg C = 104 F)

Got a text yesterday from a friend in BC's Okanogan region, it was 44 Deg C (111.2 F), while up in Morthern Alberta where I grew up (Grande Prairie), it was 41 Deg C (105.8 F), which is about 20 Deg C higher than what would be considered the avg temp.....it's been a long week, and it's not over yet !!
    I heard the plains in Canada are getting it much, much worse. Prayers for them.

    Willow Springs race track was bouncing near 100 degrees, I was fine. Just have to keep hydrated because the wind was unbelievable.

    humidity is what gets me, I'm not a fan of much over 80* but I avoid humidity..... and given the rain storms just before this, humidity was in abundance.

    We get a few hot days then it cools off.. But rarely 100+
    Nights generally really cool off.
    I never had a home AC until 4-5 years ago

    Not noon yet and 66*. Sweet!
    Was 100 couple days ago at 9am

    if math was easy, I'd be an engineer. Just sayin'

    and the worst day was Monday.... 112* in the shade at 80% humidity. For context, Atlanta, GA has never had that level of heat and humidity at once.

    But today, it was 68 degrees when I was driving in for work...might hit 80 this afternoon.... thank heavens.

    it hit 110 on my deck, but that's direct sun

    My kid is in Gresham (the sticks of Portland) and he is whining that it is hotter and more humid than Florida!
