That's interesting - although there's not the Armageddon type conditions in Europe and north America that i'd expected, they are still breaking heat records - several more fell this week. Was also the hottest June on record for Europe.

We'd need to know more about how the weather patterns work to properly analyse the situation in Japan - could it be that the 'omega block' referred to in the above article - "a high-pressure pattern that blocks and diverts the jet stream, allowing a mass of hot air to flow up from northern Africa and the Iberian peninsula " (causing the extreme heat in Europe), somehow be having a cooling effect in Japan?
