Datebook: July 10 - Death Valley Sets World Record for Highest Temperature 100 Years Ago

Jul 10, 2013


For much of the United States, this summer (and last) has been HOT, but not as hot as Death Valley on this day in 1913. The Weather Bureau recorded a temperature of 134 Fahrenheit (56.7 Celsius) - the highest ever recorded. Pardon me while I go stand with the freezer door open.

It’s Wednesday, July 10
