It's going to get too hot.
Too fast.
And you are all going to die.
But hey. You'll look oh so good in that Gucci stuff in a museum next to the Pompeii exhibit.

Given that air conditioning isn't common over there??? Not bad advice
 
2017-06-19 10:23:58 AM  
A lot of people from hotter climates always mock us when we get hot weather in the UK, but do you realise we are not told how to manage in hot weather? We are not told about staying in the shade, wearing loose light clothing, or even to drink a lot of water. We don't routinely fit air conditioning to properties. It's not like it is in hot countries where people go from air-conditioned building to air-conditioned building in air-conditioned cars while grasping their fiji water.
 
2017-06-19 10:24:00 AM  
How many buildings and homes there have air conditioning? We can point and laugh but without AC in a place where that's not a normal summer day, it's going to cause problems.
 
2017-06-19 10:25:06 AM  
90 degrees? Psh.

Get back to me when you hit triple digits with high humidity.
 
2017-06-19 10:25:20 AM  
90 and humid is hot.
Thank you.

Ugh. Even worse. I've been in London during heat waves (34 C) not once, but twice. And unlike hot climates, indoor spaces aren't liberally air conditioned there. So everywhere seemed to be hot and stuffy. At least outside you have the chance of a breath of air.

Someone has to tell you? You don't just figure it out on your own? Like, "Blimey, it's warm, I may not wear my woolen jumper today at all, what?"

I'd breathe inside, as well. Helps with the asphyxia, you know. Quite.

Back in July, 2001, I traveled to London, then on to Normandy, France, Paris and back to London (then back to the States). Of the four hotels I stayed in, only one had air conditioning: a fairly upscale one near Buckingham Palace. Even the Holiday Inn Express in London didn't have it.

Really? Stay indoors in high heat if you have no A/C?

Going outdoors means the lower-than-body-temperature air will actually cool you off, moreso if you are damp (sweat or water). Indoors, it is more likely to have heat building up, rising far above 32C, probably above body temperature, at which point your fans will only compound the situation by blowing hot air over you, cooking you like a convection oven.
 
2017-06-19 10:33:10 AM  
It doesn't sound that hot but in the UK almost no one has AC. Even many of the work places don't have AC. The houses aren't built to stay cool so when it's 90 outside, it's 90 inside. Finally, people in the UK walk a lot (at least in the cities) so you end up spending a lot more time in the heat and then coming home to a place which is also hot. It's not catastrophic by any means (as long as you're healthy) but it's not very comfortable.

Those poor sausages. All fried up in their own juices. There's no way to boil all the taste out of them now, they'll have to be thrown out.

Aren't these are the same people who once ruled over such places as India, Egypt, Southern Africa, and Iraq all without the benefit air conditioning?

I've got no pity. British fashion sense was imposed on the anglosphere, most of whom lived in continental, sub-tropical, or tropical climates.

A wool jacket, over a vest, over a shirt, over an undershirt, was clearly invented by a people whose summers top out at 70 degrees, and not by a people whose overnight lows are 75.

A white silk shirt and the dark blue, tropical weight jacket today, Bond decided. He wore the brown loafers as well, as Bond detested shoelaces.

I honestly couldn't tell if Billy was being facetious with that part of his comment or not.

There will be trouble if it gets to 88 degrees.

Also remember how much humidity plays a factor in this.  105° F in Phoenix doesn't feel too bad, while 86° F where it's humid can be terribly uncomfortable.

Fans do still work, even above body temperature, so long as the humidity isn't too high. You lose more heat via evaporation than you gain from conduction from the air. We effectively shed heat in quite high temperatures so long as it's dry.

Kinda like us New Englanders laughing at more southern states going batcrap over 3 inches of snow.  3 inches is a lot if your highway dept doesn't own a snow plow.
