With this feature, I added some extra conversational vocabulary that can be used this summer! 

Language for Conversation: Talking about Hot Weather!

(1)Describing Temperature Numbers
Note -  F (F=Fahrenheit) is the temperature scale in the United States
Long Speaking Style: It is 110 degrees Fahrenheit.   
Short Speaking Style: It is 110.          
The temperature has hit 105, today. (hit = reached)
The temperature is in the triple digits (100 degrees + or a number with 3 number places).

(2)Expression to Talk About Hot Weather
It is scorching hot out there. (to scorch: to burn a surface of so as to change its color and texture.)
It’s a scorcher today.
It’s boiling hot out there today. (boiling: to an extreme degree; very, extremely.)

(3)Expressing How You Feel in Hot Weather
This heat is unbearable. (unbearable: too bad, harsh, or extreme to be accepted or endured : not bearable.)
I am boiling.
I am dying from the heat.
This heat is killing me!
I am going to die if I don’t get out of this heat!
I feel like I am baking in this heat!

Enjoy your summer!
