Since the weather thread is so popular... by Ellerd on 10 July 2008 1:27pm
 
What is the coldest and warmest outside temperatures you've experienced in your life? Not including artificial environments - freezers and the like.

Me:-

Coldest: -3C (27F) on school camp in western Queensland. Our teacher made us get up at 5 in the morning and go for a jog...
Warmest: 42C (108F) in March last year. Hottest day on record in my town. The previous day was hot enough when the mercury reached 38C!

Well the hottest was 45C out the back yard at Mum's one summer,
The coldest would be at a smash up caravan derby in King's Lynne in mid winter OR waiting for a bus in Kilmarnock Scotland OR at the Swiss, Alps, all were well below zero

All in London in the 1980s onward - the warmest probably only a couple of years ago - temps over 100 deg.F and the coldest - probably about 1986 or 1993 - and cold for several weeks, I recall

At the end of June/beg of July a few years ago temps hit 50C in Kusadasi. I hasten to add this was unusual even for there - the govt offices were closed because of the heat. Otherise the hottest is usually in the 40's.

It was also the year I decided to contract food poisoning (Campylobacter) so you can guess I was pretty unwell!! Thank goodness we had air conditioning in our hotel room.

I dont know about coldness.

I know about coldness. We camped out while cross-country skiing. It was -50C in the hamlet we passed through. OK, no fair, we slept in the covered back (uninsulated, unheated) of my truck and with a serious winter bag over us. The propane had frozen and needed to be warmed before we could cook. I'll never do that again.

Hot? About 35C. I need a week of heat just to thaw out each summer!

Here in Connecticut, the coldest I've seen it get is -10F (-23C), and the hottest was 103F (40C). But we've had wind chills around -40F (which is "Freeze Your Balls Off" C). I went cross-country skiing on a day when the high temp was -5F! I lost two pounds that day just from trying to keep warm, but it was perfect skiing weather, because it was so dry and cold that the snow came down powdery and stayed that way all day.

Hottest : about +40 C in Paris (of all places !), July 2002. Went there for hols with the family - can't remember much of Paris, except bathing in the fountain outside Louvre !

Oh, I forgot--when I was a kid, we were having lunch in Tuba City, AZ (I think that's the right state), and there was a thermometer that read 108F--in the shade. The guy at the diner said it was 120 in the sun, and I believed it. And those were in the days before cars had AC! It was like stepping out into a working clothes dryer.
