The world record high temperature of 134 degrees was set in Death Valley (Furnace Creek), CA on July 10, 1912 …but did it?
There has been research as to the validity of the report. Back in February of 2013, there was a paper published showing, what was through to be the world record (136° in northern Libya), the reason why that record was no longer a valid record.
This would now make the 134° report at Death Valley the world record. Well…not so fast. Click here and take a look at some research that has been done on that temperature reading just posted. As of now 134° is the record. We will wait and hear from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) says about it.
