With the ever-increasing urban population, urban thermal environment is of great importance to many sectors of a society. In this issue, Liang et al. (2022) examined the 3D urban thermal effect (UTE) across a cluster of large cities, with a focus on both the canopy and boundary layers in the vertical, based on high-resolution observations during the record-setting heat wave (HW) of July–August 2013 in the Yangtze River Delta of China. It is found that the HW intensifies the canopy layer UTE horizontally and extends the boundary layer UTE vertically.
