On July 3, the world marks its hottest day ever


According to data from the US National Centers for Environmental Prediction, July 3 was the world's hottest day ever.

The typical worldwide temperature arrived at 17.01 degrees Celsius (62.62 Fahrenheit), outperforming the August 2016 record of 16.92C (62.46F) as heatwaves sizzled all over the planet.

An intense heat dome has been causing problems in the southern United States. Temperatures in China reached 95 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius) during an ongoing heatwave.

Temperatures in North Africa have been close to 50 C (122 F). Temperatures were also unusually high even in Antarctica. With 8.7 degrees Celsius (47.6 degrees Fahrenheit), Ukraine's Vernadsky Research Base in the Argentine Islands set a new July record.

Friederike Otto, a climate scientist, stated, "This is not a milestone we should be celebrating."
