Has the highest temperature been broken in Pakistan?

May 11, 2018

A city in the southern part of Pakistan soared to 50.2 Celsius. This might just be the highest temperature ever reliably measured on the planet during April.

The temperature was observed in the city of Nawabshah, which has a population of 1.1 million and is about 120 miles from the Indian Ocean.

Christopher Burt, an expert on global weather extremes said it was likely also the highest temperature “yet reliably observed on Earth in modern records.”

The previous hottest April temperature of 51.0 Celsius was set in Santa Rosa, Mexico, in April 2001.
