Hottest day on record globally

Monday was the hottest day ever recorded globally.

Monday was the hottest day on record globally, according to data from the US National Center for Climate Prediction.

The average global temperature reached 17.01C (62.62F), beating the record of 16.92C (62.46F) set in August 2016 when heatwaves gripped the world.

South America has been in the grip of extreme heat in recent weeks. The heatwave continued in China with temperatures above 35C (95F). Temperatures near 50C (122F) have been observed in North Africa.

Even Antarctica, which is currently in its winter, has recorded unusually high temperatures.

Ukraine’s Vernadsky Research Base in the Argentine archipelago of the White Continent recently broke the July temperature record with 8.7C (47.6F).

“This is not a milestone we should celebrate, it’s a death sentence for people and ecosystems,” said Frederic Otto, a climate scientist at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment at Imperial College London.
