I assumed it was actually hot.

I used Google to translate some of our temperatures for perspective to the northern Europeans. In Georgia 35 C is a pretty regular high temp where I live in the same region. 40 C would not be unheard of but it's rare

What do you reckon an average humidity down here is? I don't pay that close attention and just use my own personal misery index

Average? In the worst of the summer up where I am (Richmond is right at sea level and on a river), 90%+ humidity is far from unusual. An almanac I found has the average morning humidity at 85% or so for June, July, and August.

Our average high is 30 C in June, 32.2 C in July, and 30.6 C in August (and 27.2 C in September).

Summer before last I rode my bike in 47 degree weather. I drank five gatorades when I got there, 15 miles later.

There were homeless people spread eagle on the concrete in the shade, like chipmunks at yosemite.
