Summer reached its boiling point - literally - this past week across Western Europe. The United Kingdom’s Met Office tweeted that London’s Heathrow Airport reached 98.4 degrees (36.9°C), a new record for July. While the heat in Cambridge, England, rose to 100.5 (38°C) degrees. This marks only the second time triple-digit temperatures have been recorded in the United Kingdom. If you're not familiar with the British summer - its usual average temperatures are around 64.4 (18°C) degrees throughout the hottest month of July. So if those from Texas like to scoff at the seemingly low tolerance that the British have for heat, remember that these weather conditions are far from what they're used to.

The U.K was only one of many countries to shatter extreme weather records. Paris, France reported 108 degrees (42.6°C), its highest temperature ever this week. "Climate change has increased the likelihood and severity of heatwave episodes across Europe," the UK's national weather service said to the BBC. Residents have had to get creative to keep cool and keep themselves laughing despite the devilishly hot summer. Scroll down below to check out some hot weather memes to enjoy next to a fan while you're enduring this meteorology phenomenon, and don't forget to upvote your favs!

My cat was actually outside when I kept calling her she just ignored me and carried on enjoying the 38°C with no breeze and utter humidity. She loved it. (she drank loads of water with ice cubes in it, which makes it have a "normal" temperature don't worry she was hydrated)

If he had tea in a flask and a packet of egg sarnies, then he'd really be British.

It's nice being a guy... as long as you are brave enough, nothing is stopping you from dressing like this in some parts of the world

The fountain’s probably managed by the same kind of evil people who install bird spikes in trees. Bastards.

The city of London that cuts the water from fountains and causing pigeons boil from within to conserve water during the heatwave and then there's this guy.

The summers always make me wanna go out and buy a car. How trains can be allowed to operate without AC is beyond me.
