knocker Posted July 1, 2015 Location: Camborne Location: Camborne Share Posted July 1, 2015 Unprecedented June heat scorched portions of four continents during the past week, and many all-time heat records are likely to fall across multiple continents this July as the peak heat of summer arrives for what has been the hottest year in recorded human history. Already on July 1, in Wimbledon, England--site of the classic Wimbledon tennis tournament--players are enduring the city's hottest day in recorded history. The mercury hit 96.3Â°F (35.7Â°C) at Kew Gardens, the nearest recording site, topping the previous record of 96.3Â°F (34.6Â°C) on June 26, 1976. London's Heathrow Airport has risen to 98.1Â°F (36.7Â°C) so far on July 1. This is not only a new all-time July record at that location, but also a July heat record for the UK, topping the previous record of 97.7Â°F (36.5Â°C) in Wisley on July 19, 2006. http://www.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMasters/comment.html?entrynum=3031 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
