3rd July was the Hottest Day Ever Recorded Worldwide

On July 3, 2023, the Earth experienced its hottest day ever recorded. The average global temperature was measured to be 62.62 degrees Fahrenheit, according to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the University of Maine. This temperature was recorded two meters above the Earth’s surface.

This new record broke the previous hottest day, which occurred in July 2022 and August 2016, when the global temperature reached 62.46 degrees. The recent increase in global temperatures can be attributed to intense heatwaves observed in the United States, Canada, and Europe, as well as the presence of El Niño conditions.

During El Niño, the Pacific Ocean’s surface temperatures rise above average.Although NOAA and the University of Maine have been collecting global temperature data since 1979, researchers believe that these readings can be compared to data from earlier periods.

They are confident that this is the highest global temperature recorded since measurements began in the 1850s using instruments. This emphasizes the ongoing impact of climate change.
