Original Message Cucumbers too hot?
Your problem is most likely related to too few pollinators around rather than too hot weather. Try hand pollinating and see what happens.
To hand pollinate you can take a male blossom (these are the blossoms without the bulbous growth behind the flower), stip off the petals, and waggle the anthers in the female blossoms making sure those anthers contact the stigma so pollen transfer is made.
