10 hot Swedish words

As we are currently enjoying a heatwave in Sweden, it made me think of the different words for, or related to, being hot. As in temperature hot. Not sexy hot. This is what I came up with:

Het – hot

Varmt – warm and also hot

Stekhet – ‘frying hot’

Tropisk – tropical hot

Brännande – burning hot

Glödande – glowing hot like embers in a fire

Rykande – smoking hot

Svettig – sweaty

Febrig – to have a temperature. Can also mean horny apparently, a bit like the American ‘hot and bothered’.

Fuktig – humid (not what you were thinking it meant). Also means damp.

Can you think of any others to add to the list?
