""During [most of] July, our water temperatures were, I would say, right around normal," said Capt. Butch Arbin, head of the Ocean City Beach Patrol. That's in the low 70s. About two weeks ago, he said, "there was a tremendous change in temperature, [dropping] as much as 10 degrees overnight."

Heat wave in India (a thread created in March)

Besides the heat wave in Europe and dramatic change in temperature of sea water in certain area, there's also a heat wave hitting China recently and extra-ordinarily cool weather recorded in some area of Japan a while ago(In July if I remember correctly).
