    in here

    If we are talking the temperature in a house/taxi, we say "It's too hot in here."

    Is it natural to leave out the "in" before "here"?

    Thanks.

    No, not in that context.

    Thanks bhai

    If we are sitting outside a house, we say "It's too hot here. Let's go in. We can turn on the air-conditioner."

    Is it correct to say "It's too hot here."?

    Thanks.

    If we are in a park, which of the following sentence is natural?

    1. It's too hot in here.
    2. It's too hot here

    Thanks.
