The hot weather continues…

Ukraine’s climate and weather is continental, but tempered by the Black Sea; winters and summers are rather temperate near the coast and harsher inland… The mean July temperatures are about 23°C (73°F) in the southwest and 19°C (66°F) in the northeast… (Ukraine: weather and seasons: when to travel)

This summer in Ukraine is anomalous, indeed. Weather Channel predicts up to 92°F (34°C) for the weekend. “For Russia expect a dry, very warm summer’s day and this extends across Belarus into Poland, the Ukraine into Germany” (Weather Online).

The hottest July was in 1931 with about 97°F (36°C) on July 16. It seems like a new weather record may be set. At least, a positive point is that it is higher than eighty-three degrees Fahrenheit.
