Hottest summer since 1934

It’s official. It is the hottest summer since 1934 as yesterday the temperature peaked at 35.9 degrees Celsius, making it the 46th high temperature day so far this year, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said.

The 46 high temperature days, when the mercury hits 35 degrees or above, surpassed the 45 back in 1947. There were 55 such days in 1934, the city’s hottest summer on record, according to the bureau’s database.

There was some relief from the heat yesterday afternoon as a thunderstorm helped bring the temperature below 30 degrees.

Forecasters said today will be cloudy to overcast with the temperature between 25 and 29 degrees. It will be the first day since July 1 that the daily high has been below 30 degrees. Tomorrow will be 32 degrees and mostly cloudy.
