That's about 49C for you metric types.

More power to you Nick, I've never even experienced that kind of heat.

Even the night temperatures would be unpleasant.

It was 105 here and I was working outside all day. What difference does 15 degrees make?

A huge amount of difference. Dry 105F is about the upper limit for me. You feel the difference even going to 110, and that is after 18 years of N SLO county summers where 100-105 is common and unremarkable. 115 is just an unremitting furnace. I haven't gone any higher than 117 but didn't find it the most agreeable.

The difference is exponential.

That was sarcasm.
The hottest I have experienced was working landscaping for a week when it was about 110 every day. My body eventually got used to it and stopped bitching at me, didn't really notice it much. I always feel the hottest when transitioning from spring to summer.

I have experienced 120-130 getting into a closed car and it feels like the air temperature is burning my skin.

Well at least my neighborhood wasn't quite the hottest today:
