It's so HOT

They forecast 38°C for today, and as I wended my weary way homeward from the Maison de la Bible this afternoon, sometimes it felt like much, much more.

The thing I noticed was that if you kept in the shade then you were well hot, but there was a cooling breeze. 

However, if you strayed into direct sunlight, then not only was the atmosphere hot, you also got the direct heating effect of the strong sunshine AND even the breeze seemed to be hot as a hairdryer.

Anyway, they forecast storms for 7pm, followed by cooler temperatures. 

As I type, at 8:15pm, the sun is still blazing down and there is no sign whatsoever of a storm, of a weaker sun or of lower temperatures.

These forecasters, they know nothing.
