#AceWeatherReport – July.27: The Great Plains and Midwest — along with parts of the East — . And in places where residents must also cope with high humidity, those temperatures could feel like they have reached triple digits….
#AceDailyNews says Both Sides of the Pond: As floods, heat, then floods again: England is battered by wild weather as much of the USA suffers heat dome as #GlobalWarming creates more instances of #ClimateChange following the recent California Wildfires last week …..and it spreads worldwide as #COP26 prepares with all leaders making promises but will they keep them before its too late or is it too late already ?

Extreme Weather and Climate Updates
Residents used buckets, brooms and wooden boards to create makeshift flood defences for their homes as storm drains were overloaded in parts of the city.
“Having been born and raised in London, I have never seen anything quite like it,” said south London resident Eddie Elliott. “It stands out as the worst I’ve experienced personally … totally shut down the whole road with buses stood broken down in the water.”
The rain followed a spell of hot, sunny weather that sent Britons to lakes and the sea in search of relief.
Earlier this month a wave of storms caused huge flooding damage and left more than 200 people dead in Germany and Belgium.
US States are suffering more wildfires with a heat dome expected this week …..
An excessive heat warning was in place for parts of Idaho, Montana and Oregon through Tuesday, . Billings, Mont., could see temperatures , and nearby locations could reach 110. Boise, Idaho, is on Monday, but cool down slightly as the week progresses. A heat advisory was also in effect for Monday and Tuesday for parts of Louisiana and Texas and up through South Dakota.
The nation’s largest wildfire, the Bootleg Fire in southwest Oregon, grew over the weekend and has now burned about 408,000 acres. “The progress that we have made is due to the continuous, vigilant work by our crews,” Joe Hessel, an incident commander for the Oregon Department of Forestry, . “Severe fire weather conditions and extremely dry fuels continue to challenge us on this fire.”
Dozens of are actively burning across the Western United States, charring large swaths of land in recent days, according to a New York Times analysis of government and satellite data. Some are threatening thousands of people who live and work just a few miles away.
As the fire season gets underway, The Times built an interactive map to track the latest wildfires as they spread across Western states. Check back regularly for updates.

At least seven people were killed and several others were injured when in southwestern Utah on Sunday afternoon, state officials said.
The Utah Highway Patrol said it appeared that in the crash “after high winds caused a sand or dust storm and impaired visibility on the roadway.”
“No one could see, so people started stopping, and then you just get a chain reaction,” Trooper Andrew Battenfield, a spokesman for the Highway Patrol, said late Sunday night. “Nobody could see, and then all of a sudden, you’re slamming into a car,” he said. “It’s just a horrific situation.”
Several people were taken to local hospitals in critical condition, officials said.
The crash, which happened around 5 p.m. local time, prompted the closure of parts of Interstate 15 in Millard County, between Salt Lake City and St. George. The Highway Patrol said the road would be closed in the area for a “significant time.”
China’s breakneck growth over the last four decades erected soaring cities where there had been hamlets and farmland. The cities lured factories, and the factories lured workers. The boom lifted hundreds of millions of people out of the poverty and rural hardship they once faced.
Now those cities face the daunting new challenge of adapting , a possibility that few gave much thought to when the country began its extraordinary economic transformation. China’s pell-mell, brisk urbanization has in some ways made the challenge harder to face.
No one weather event can be directly linked to climate change, but that flooded Zhengzhou and other cities in central China last week, killing at least 69 as of Monday, reflects a that has seen deadly flooding recently in Germany and Belgium, and extreme heat and wildfires in Siberia. The flooding in China also highlights the environmental vulnerabilities that accompanied the country’s economic boom and could yet undermine it.
China has already taken some steps to begin to address climate change. Xi Jinping is the country’s first leader to make the issue a national priority.
As early as 2013, Mr. Xi promised to build an “ecological civilization” in China. “We must maintain harmony between man and nature and pursue sustainable development,” he said in a in Geneva in 2013.
LONDON: Londoners were cleaning up on Monday (Jul 26) after torrential rain left homes, roads and several subway stations flooded, the second unseasonal inundation in as many weeks.
The Met Office weather agency said 41.6cm of rain fell in central London on Sunday afternoon. Monday was drier, but the Environment Agency said four flood warnings remained in place for southeast England.
Two London hospitals asked patients not to come to the emergency department because of disruption from the floods.
Transport for London said eight stations were closed because of flooding, including Pudding Mill Lane, an above-ground station where video footage showed water surging through a concourse and up stairs.
For the second time in a matter of two weeks, heavy rainfall has wreaked havoc across London, flooding train stations, stranding motorists and forcing at least two hospitals to redirect patients from their emergency rooms.
The downpour, which dumped about a month’s worth of rain in some areas on Sunday, came at the tail end of a heat wave that had led Public Health England to issue an alert for the first time ever warning people to stay cool indoors, close curtains in rooms that face the sun, drink plenty of water and avoid excess alcohol.
The heat broke as thunderstorms swept across southern England this weekend, bringing torrential downpours that dumped a month’s worth of rain in some areas in just a few hours.
The London Fire Brigade wrote on Twitter that it had responded to more than 1,000 calls as people needed to be rescue from cars suddenly submerged or escape homes as the waters rose. Heavy rainfall flooded emergency departments of Newham Hospital and led to “operational issues” at Whipps Cross Hospital. And service on the London Underground was disrupted as water poured into several stations.
Thames Water, a company responsible for Greater London’s sewage and water services, said on Monday that the rainfall had led to surface flooding and that crews had been working through the night to make repairs.
By Monday morning, the floodwaters had largely subsided, though Britain’s weather service said that warnings remained in effect in parts of the country.
While individual weather events are hard to directly attribute to climate change, there is now broad scientific agreement that the extreme weather the world is experiencing this summer is being fueled by those changes.
