Germany Breaks its All-Time Heat Record

Recommended Posts

 

Germany broke its all-time heat record on Sunday July 5, when the mercury soared to 104.5°F (40.3°C) at Kitzingen in Bavaria. An even higher reading of 105.4°F (40.8°C) was recorded at the University of Karlsruhe, but this is not considered an official station. The previous official national heat record recognized by the German meteorological agency (DWD) was 104.4°F (40.2°C), set in July 1983 and matched in August 2003. Numerous cities in Germany set all-time heat records over the weekend, including Saturday's 100.2°F (37.9°C ) reading at Berlin's Dahlem station, which has a very long period of record going back to 1876. Frankfurt beat its all-time heat record on Sunday--both at the airport (38.8°C) and downtown (39.0°C). Thanks go to weather records researcher Maximiliano Herrera and Klimahaus' Michael Theusner for these stats.

I take it then that you are advocating that weather events shouldn't be posted in this area in unless they satisfy your definition of 'big deal'?
