With the effect of greenhouse gas emissions, global warming continues to increase its effect all over the world. The effects of global warming have started to be seen more recently. The world’s hottest day record, which was set on July 3, 2023, was renewed as of July 4.
Hottest day record broken for 2 consecutive days
On Monday, July 3, the global temperature reached 17.01 degrees, setting a new record. This figure, which surpassed the record of 16.92 degrees in August 2016, did not last long. With the new figures measured on Tuesday, July 4, the record for the hottest day changed hands.
The date of July 4, 2023, when the global average temperature was measured at 17.18 degrees, went down in history as the hottest day, while the temperature record on July 3 was broken again within 24 hours. The global average daily temperature reached 17.18 degrees, according to data from the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), which operates under the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The climate crisis, which is caused by the effect of greenhouse gases released, has caused great changes in air temperatures in recent years. In these days when we are having one of the hottest summers of recent years, experts state that new records may be broken in the next 6-week period.
While temperature records are broken in many countries in Asia during the spring months, the air temperatures in the southern parts of the USA are above seasonal normals. In addition, the UK is struggling with the highest temperatures in history. On the other hand, it is stated that the temperatures in the North Sea and Antarctica have risen to very high levels.
In this period, when we have spent the hottest days of the last 120,000 years, there are concerns that the temperatures will increase even more. So what do you think about the hottest day record that was broken two days in a row? You can share your views with us in the comments section.
