Amid the hottest month in recorded history, some records still stand out as absolutely jaw dropping. That’s definitely true of a measurement made in the Arctic this July.

According to data released in the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) monthly climate analysis, a weather station in Sweden north of the Arctic Circle hit a stunning 34.8 degrees Celsius last month. As an isolated data point, it would be shocking. But coupled with a host of other maladies, from no sea ice within 200km of Alaska to the unruly fires ravaging Siberia, it’s an exclamation point on the climate crisis.

Rain to clear as temperatures rise on dry day of weather with sunny spells

Rain to clear as temperatures rise on dry day of weather with sunny spells The weather warning has come and gone ahead of dry day with sunny spells across the country to kick off the weekend. Rain will clear quickly on Saturday morning ahead of a mixed day of cloud and sunny spells as temperatures rise as high as 21C. Most of the country will enjoy some dry weather, however there will be some passing showers in the west. A Met Eireann spokesman said: ‘Cloud and damp to begin with localised falls of rain, quickly clearing eastwards.

-31^@ degrees Fahrenheit By using the equation: T(°F) = T(°C) × 1.8 + 32 All you do is plug in T(°C) (in this case - 35 ) and solve. => What is this temperature in degrees Fahrenheit?

The steamy temperature was recorded on July 26 in the small Swedish outpost of Markusvinsa, which sits on the southern edge of the Arctic Circle. Deke Arndt, a NOAA climate scientist, said on a call with reporters that the data was analysed and quality controlled by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute and that “they have established that as highest temperature north of the Arctic Circle” for the country. For comparison, the hottest temperature recorded in New York City last month was 35 degrees Celsius.

The heat wave that enveloped the Arctic spread a lot farther than Markusvinsa, though. Alaska recorded its hottest month ever amid extremely weird weather for the state. The heat has driven massive wildfire, and smoke from those fires enveloped Anchorage and Fairbanks, the former of which has had its smokiest summer on record, according to Alaska weather expert Rick Thoman. Salmon dieoffs, the earliest walrus haul out ever recorded, and emaciated animals have also been reported around the state.

Dangerous heat wave in Europe set to break even more records

Dangerous heat wave in Europe set to break even more records A dangerously intense heatwave across much of Europe is to spike even higher Thursday after already breaking records in several countries, impacting rail traffic and sending people in search of shade and water. Paris was expected to see the mercury soar to as much as 41 or 42 degrees Celsius, breaking a 70-year-plus record of 40.4C (104.7 Fahrenheit) and turning the UNESCO-listed capital into a baking urban bowl. Britain's Met Office predicted a chance that the UK record of 38.5C, which was recorded in Faversham, Kent, in August 2004, would also be exceeded on Thursday. On Wednesday, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands all recorded their all-time highest temperatures.

But over the weekend, the weather station there recorded an air temperature of 43 degrees Fahrenheit, more than 50 degrees above normal “There are other cases in the reanalysis record with greater than 20 degree Celsius departures” from normal temperatures, said Zachary Labe, a sea-ice

During the same press call, Thoman expanded on the reasons why it’s been so weird in Alaska. The big one is the disappearance of sea ice six to eight weeks ahead of schedule, which has left a 201km ring of open water around the state. Oceans were already warm going into the summer, but the dark exposed ocean water has absorbed even more heat compared to the normally reflective ice cover.

Thoman called it “remarkable warmth” and said it surpassed the oceanic heat wave dubbed The Blob that gripped the northeastern Pacific in 2015. The hot oceans have in turn heated up the land. Increased evaporation has thus cranked up the humidity, leading to some uncomfortably warm nights in Alaska.

Just as the heat hasn’t been confined to Markusvinsa, the disappearing sea ice isn’t just an Alaskan coast thing. The Arctic Ocean as a whole recorded its lowest July sea ice extent ever, which could have in part helped fuel a bizarre lightning storm just a few hundred miles from the North Pole. Sea ice was a staggering 19.8 percent below average, dipping well under the previous low set in July 2012. Sea ice stans may recall 2012 as the year sea ice hit a record minimum extent. While we’re still six to eight weeks away from the annual sea ice minimum, and things could change in the coming month or so, this year’s icepack is in decidedly bad shape.

Temperatures Hitting Record Highs in Europe. The town of Lakselv, Norway, located near the Banak Peninsula and more than 300 miles north of the Arctic Circle in far northern Europe, recorded a temperature of 91 degrees on That's roughly 30 degrees above average for this region of the world.

This may not sound warm, but above the Arctic Circle in late November, it is. Well- above average temperatures pooled in the Arctic on Nov. 29. The white line separates sub-freezing air to the A high temperature of 4.7 degrees Celsius , roughly 40 degrees Fahrenheit, was reported Wednesday at

July’s Arctic heat is part of a larger global trend driven by carbon pollution. The NOAA data released on Thursday also confirmed that July was the hottest month ever recorded on Earth, with temperature edging 1.7 degrees Fahrenheit (0.95 degrees Celsius) above the 20th-century average. Based on the heat in the first seven months of 2019, the world is almost certain to have one of its five warmest years on record. Using data analyzed separately by Berkeley Earth, climate scientist Robert Rohde tweeted that there’s a 90 percent chance that 2019 will go down as the second hottest year on record, trailing only 2016.

August bank holiday 2019 weather: Record-breaking temperatures could soar to 33C in the south east.
With warm weather on the cards for the long weekend, many people are expected to head for the coast or the countryside and motoring organisations have warned drivers to be prepared. August Bank Holiday Monday RAC spokesman Rod Dennis said: “With summer returning in time for the weekend for many of us, it’s going to mean millions of us take to the road for day trips and short breaks. By Bank Holiday Monday itself temperatures will rise further with around 33 Celsius possible in the southeast – which would set a new record for the coming Bank Holiday weekend.
