I wonder can I say

"It's a heat"


"It's a very hot weather"


"it's a very high temperature"

I know there should be an article, but I didn't encounter example with the indefinite article before the word "heat".

    Almost everyone would just say it's hot. If I heard it's a heat, I would interpret it as meaning it's a race. Commented Jul 1, 2019 at 7:32

    You can say it is "a heat wave" to denote that it is a specific period of unusually hot weather.

    You might say "It's a hot heat" or "It's hot" but I don't think you'd say "It's a heat" unless it was a tie in a race :)
