MC doesn't give Pontarlier as it's in France, but this is what it's predicting for Lausanne tomorrow. Totally different from your post.
That is how it looks now Mind the medium probability. We will see tomorrow

Actually you can get the weather for Pontarlier on Meteo Centrale.
This it what it looks like for tomorrow.

Meteosuisse is restricted to Switzerland but Meteo Centrale isn't.

Re: Weather!

Thanks Belgianmum. I tried Meteocentrale for Pontarlier yesterday and got shunted off to a French weather website. Nothing like that came up for me.

It's been raining here since 5.30am and Jura mountains have disappeared under the mist/low cloud. So I'm staying nice and dry indoors today after all.

Re: Weather!

Well Pontarlier is definitely in France, so that is not surprising

Absolutely beautiful near Pontarlier today, sunny and warm with a bit of a breeze. Lovely. Just been sitting out on our swing seat with the evening sun in my face, with doglet- le loves the sun (having lived for so long in the Canaries).

Re: Weather!

Yes, it's been a good day here too, nice and sunny but not too warm.

Yesterday it rained for most of the morning and then started again in the evening. Did manage to stop around 10pm though so some people managed to let off their fireworks.

Re: Weather!

Lovely swim in the nc lake (I was the only one doing this as the water was freezing 20C :P). Warm, nice breeze. Brace for some more heat wave though. It should be moderate this time, nothing like last month

Re: Weather!

Probably off topic but temperatures have been running around 50C in Iraq and forecast to continue; how do they survive?

Yup, Baghdad registered an all-time record with 51°.

Due to humidity, felt temperatures are said to have gone above 70° on friday in Iran.
And that's despite the light breeze

Sleep during the day? Stay inside?

It's primarily a dry heat, they sleep on the roof, have cold drinks and ice delivered, and usually have aircon inside.

They stay in the shade when going out, which they don't do in the middle of the day.

Standard it's-f/cking-hot coping mechanisms.

Re: Weather!

Two years ago we went to Galway in western Ireland, and the weather was glorious in July: no rain and very, very, warm for 2 weeks.

This year we had horizontal rain, and temperatures at a maximum 18 deg C, it was the coldest July for 20 years. So much for global warming!

Unfortunately you are thinking backwards :> Ireland is supposed to be that way. Do you remember last two scorching years? And do you remember cold snaps in 2010 when connemara was covered with ice and snow? Climate change is just this: change. It means greater variability of WEATHER (that's what you are referring to) over very long period of time (climate) resulting in average values of weather elements to slowly change (i.e. mean global T rise). You also need to see a bigger picture here. Heatwaves in Europe, unusual ones in lengths and severity, heatwaves in the USA ect ect.

Depends where you are. The remnants of my family who still live there use solar panel banks, plus they can't really afford to leave the aircon on all day anyway, so it's just to help with the worst.
