The city snagged another 90-degree day. We're now at five in a row, with many more to come.

The record month was boosted by a historic heat wave in Europe and unusually warm conditions across the Arctic and Eurasia.

Rainfall has been less than feared but "life-threatening" flooding is still expected as the storm heads north.

Conditions are slightly more tolerable, but it's only temporary.
