It's still summer in the Philippines, it's El Nino too..it doesn't even rain here... in our part of the country- [province]..and it is just so hot- it's even hotter in the city- the temperature is at 91 F already. Even if I'm just sitting here, doing nothing, I still sweat a lot. Everything in the house is warm too- the chairs and tables absorbed the heat, even the water. The plants are dying even though they are watered everyday. The farms are getting really dry too, some crops are already dying...I really hope this El Nino ends soon..

well im also from the philippines and speaking about the rain, it just poured down so hard a few minutes ago..and its such a relief to be out of the very hot environment here...but i wasnt aware that there is EL nino here in the philippines..maybe its just because of the very thin ozone layer that our locations gets to absorb all the radiated heat! ugh i wish we were living somewhere a whole lot colder dont you agree?

Its really horrible this time in India and my city,Mumbai.The temp is 35 to 36 degrees Celsius here and since Mumbai is a coastal city the humidity is very high, between 70 to 80.that means even under the fan you sweat till you are drained out. You have to drink plenty of water otherwise you will get dehydrated. In other parts of the country which are landlocked the temps are extremely high between 45 to 50 Cel and since it is completely dry without humidity people are dying like flies due to the heat.Water scarcity has also added to the woes of the people besides massive power cuts which are causing havoc to the people as well as industries.Everyone is eagerly waiting for the monsoon to strike,which is just a week to a fortnight away.Everybody is praying that this time the rains will come in time and heavily too since last year we had poor rainfall in the country.Due to this the water storage in the dams and reservoirs in the country was very low.We have water for our city only up to July and if it doesn`t rain heavily then we are in grave peril.Hoping for the best.

It's very unpredictable. Right now it's pretty cold and foggy outside, it's 1:06am and I'm surprised it's this foggy to be honest. It looks like we might have a down pour during the night as it doesn't look too good. Most days it's been raining on and off with light spells of sunshine. It's nice this time of year because I'm generally way too hot during summer.

It is hot also because we belong in the same country. Actually as I am replying to you it is raining outside. It rain every night which gives cold air. But during the afternoon it is still hot. And even in the morning the weather is 37 degrees still. The cold air during rain gives a temporary comfortable feeling for people. I hope rain will continue because they say that rain of La Nina will enter this June.

In India also it is still summer .In a few places the weather although sunny during the day evenings become pleasant.But in the place that I live it isextremely hot .The scorching heat terrifies us .We feel so thirsty and at the same we become tired .It is impossible to sleep without an airconditioner.God should pity the people and especially the plants and send showers of rain.

I live to the South of the UK, and the weather here over the past week has been sunny and very warm up to the mid 80s F. Only 2 weeks ago we were experiencing some very cold northerly winds even though the sun was shining. The ground though has got to be very dry through a lack of rain, but it is not serious here yet, it just means that I am having to water the garden more frequently. I hope your weather improves soon and you get some rain to help things... _Derek

I knew a lot of people is really getting irritated by our weather especially this El Nino thing.I really hate it when every time I go out I can feel the sun biting my skin. It's not the way it was used to be before. I am even sweating even if sometimes there is not sun it' is just crazy with the humid temperature like that. I am just glad that we are getting rain nowadays even it only happens from time to time. At least the plants can be watered and they wont be dying anymore. When June is approaching and rainy season start that will be heavenly. I welcome the rain with open arms.

Hello lady, I live in the Southern tagalog part of the Philippines, yes it is indeed hot here. but for the last few days it started raining, that didn't give me much more worries about watering plants or getting wet because i've always brought an umbrella. if it rains somewhere it should rain where the farm is

I live in London and I'm pleased to say that the weather is finally improving! The weather is so strange in London! Sometimes it's really cold and then all of a sudden it will warm up for a short spell. It wasn't so bad getting to sleep last night but the night before it was virtually impossible! It was so warm and I had to sleep on top of my quilt as opposed to under it! I don't mind the British weather as a rule now, I'm just so used to the constant changes. It sounds like you are experiencing a tremendous amount of heat on a regular basis, I'm not sure I could put up with that myself! I think that this global warming issue is a factor as regards the dramatic weather changes. Over the years things could get considerably worse although I don't want to paint a picture of doom and gloom. I enjoy the warm weather but not too much of it, I like to experience some cold weather too! Andrew

It is late spring soon to be summer here in England. It is part of the United Kingdom. In my local area it is warm and sunny. I am able to wear my sandals at the moment. The temperature is around 21 degrees C. So it is not a tropical sort of climate like you have in the Philippines. I hope to visit the Philippines to go island hopping and snorkeling a few years from now. I expect by next week it is will cool again which will be annoying.
