It’s hot.

We’re having a heat wave here in Seattle. That means the weather is hotter than normal. The temperature today was about 100 degress Fahrenheit, that’s 37 degrees Celsius. I don’t know why humans need so many ways to tell themselves it’s hot.

Remember, in English we always say “it’s x degrees”. Sometimes you’ll here people say “it’s x degrees outside”. Never say we “have x degrees”. At the same time, you might say “we’re having high temperatures”, or “we’re having unusual weather”. That’s OK.

When it’s a very hot day, you can hear English speaker say things like “it’s boiling” or “it’s a scorcher” or even “it’s like a furnace out there”.

Do I look hot? Is it a hot cat summer?
