The 1944 record (38.6) has jus not been broken several times over the last decade, but now it was beaten with a margin in many places in the southeast.

This record won't stand long though. Forecast for tomorrow is 1 degree on top of today.
The satellite image shows an enormous stationary,clockwise rotation in the Atlantic,with the air coming off the Sahara,and just rotating around,and slamming into Northern Europe.
I stayed a few nights in Haarlem back in April of 1997.There was no air conditioning.The snows had ended two weeks before I got there.It was great! It's hard to imagine 39.3-C. Especially pedaling a bicycle down to the central train station every day,to go to work.I'd have to jump into one of the canals!
