Death Valley sets record for world's hottest month

  • Death Valley breaks own record for hottest month ever recorded on Earth: report | TheHill

Preliminary data from last month also indicate that several other locations have experienced their hottest months on record, including Reno and Palm Springs, California.

On 10 occasions in July, the overnight low failed to go below 100 degrees as "Death Valley set new record high overnight lows on six dates last month", the release said.

National Weather Service meteorologist Todd Lericos said the month's average temperature at Furnace Creek in Death Valley was 108.1F (42.28C). He kept an eye on Death Valley's readouts after last year's chart-topping July.


Mr Lericos said the data must be reviewed before the record becomes official. The hottest temperature of the month was 127°... set 4 days in a row, but was still 9° off their all-time record high.

Of course, on earth there are places that are inaccessible for measuring the temperature of the air, say climate scientists, and there it can be significantly higher than in the California reserve. Some climatologists believe the 129-degree temperature recorded in June 2013 is the highest temperature reliably measured there and anywhere on the planet, for that matter. And two French tourists had to be rescued after hitting a rocky combination of cliffs, heat and dehydration. In the national Park we found a few dead animals without any wounds - they killed the heat. "We suspect that these animals are casualties of this record period of heat".

Rangers advise visitors to stay in the park's well-traveled areas, in case their vehicle breaks down.
