* As in ''SeventeenSeventySix'' above, it was unbearably hot in Philadelphia near the end (May-July, 1776) of the Second Continental Congress, during which the American Declaration of Independence was drafted and voted on. It would also have been incredibly muggy: Philadelphia, being in the Delaware River valley, is very humid, and various features of geography give it very still air, as well.

It's the [=Heatwave=], a common device employed by writers to increase irritability and stress among characters LockedInARoom, in a HostageSituation, in a [[DieHardOnAnX Die Hard Plot]], or in a climactic Courtroom Battle. In TV episodes and movies in which the entire plot takes place in one day, the [=Heatwave=] will be dubbed The Hottest Day Of The Year. Alternatively, or additionally, the [=Heatwave=] may serve as a symbolic metaphor for the tension or anger that builds up among the characters throughout the story.

* A frequent device in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. ''Summer Knight'' makes the most use of the heat wave motif, feeding into Harry's irritability given his recent defeat and helping to highlight [[spoiler: how things are going seriously wrong with the Summer fae]]. It tends to be inverted in later books, though: after [[spoiler: Harry becomes the Winter Knight]], most books are set during cold snaps.

* ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'' episode "The Midnight Sun" featured a catastrophic heat wave caused by the Earth moving closer to the sun. It turns out in the KarmicTwistEnding that [[spoiler: [[FeverDream it was]] AllJustADream, but reality isn't much better: the Earth is moving ''away'' from the sun, resulting in the Earth gradually freezing]].
