Flashback: Earth’s hottest temperature ever recorded was in 1913

-

Today, meteorologists and weather aficionados are gathering at the Furnace Creek Visitor Center in Death Valley to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the world record high temperature.

“On July 10, 1913, a temperature of 134 degrees Fahrenheit was recorded here, which stands as the hottest air temperature ever recorded on a properly sited and maintained thermometer anywhere in the world,” the National Weather Service reports.

“This is as symbolic a mark for meteorologists as Mount Everest is for geographers,” said weather historian Christopher Burt last year. Burt works with the Weather Underground, a private meteorology company, and will be attending Wednesday’s festivities.
