108.7 Degrees in Paris Shatters All Time Record High Temperature

A scorching heat wave in Europe has resulted in the deaths of at least five people in France — and high temperatures have shattered all-time records in Paris and other parts of Europe.

108.7 Degrees in Paris Shatters All Time Record High Temperature

The high temperature in Paris on Thursday, July 25, 2019 reached 42.6 degrees Celsius — or 108.7 Fahrenheit — which exceeded the record all-time high temperature of 40.4 degrees Celsius — or 104.7 Fahrenheit — at Parc Montsouris greater than 70 years ago.

“In the Netherlands, temperatures rose to 40.7 C (105.2 F) at Gilzen-Rijen. This is the first ever occurrence of a temperature at or above 40 C (104.0 F) in the country”, according to this article written by Eric Leister and Kristina Pydynowski, who are senior meteorologists at AccuWeather. “In the Netherlands, temperatures rose to 40.7 C (105.2 F) at Gilzen-Rijen. This is the first ever occurrence of a temperature at or above 40 C (104.0 F) in the country.”

The aforementioned article also notes that “In Germany, a high of 42.6 C (108.7 F) was recorded at Lingen. Prior to this heat wave, the country’s previous record of 40.3 C (104.5 F) was from 5 July 2015.”

Belgium experienced “an all-time high temperature on Thursday when temperatures soared to 41.8 C (107.2 F) in Begijnendijk, surpassing the recent record of 39.9 C (103.8 F) in Kleine Brogel that had been set Wednesday.”

Even the United Kingdom was not excluded from the searing heat wave, where temperatures “climbed above 38 C (100 F) for only the second time in the history of the U.K., and may have set a new all-time record in the country.”

Other areas of Europe also experienced the breaking of all-time high temperature records. Combined with the recent heat wave which was experienced in the United States, July 2019 is expected to achieve the title of the hottest month in recorded history.

Fortunately, cooler weather is on its way to provide relief to the western half of Europe initially before moving in to the eastern half of Europe.

Summary

Anchorage — which is the largest city in Alaska — experienced a heat wave where the temperature reached 90 degrees Fahrenheit at Anchorage International Airport for the first time in recorded history on Thursday, July 4, 2019. That temperature shattered the former all-time record of 85 degrees Fahrenheit on June 14, 1969.

Are these record heat waves part of a greater phenomenon — or are they simply mere coincidence?

    Look up the impact that animal agriculture has on climate change.

    Given the migrant invasion from the Middle East and Africa, it makes sense the climate is changing in Eurostan.
