  • California’s Death Valley sets world record for hottest ever July

The desert region averaged 108.1 degrees last month, a half-degree increase from its record average in July 2017, according to The Washington Post.

The natural furnace of California's Death Valley was on full broil in July, tentatively setting a world record for hottest month ever.

Meteorologists calculate average temperatures for the month by first averaging each day's temperature from its high and low, then averaging each day's average.

Last July's average had broken a 100-year-old record.

Preliminary data from last month also indicate that several other locations have experienced their hottest months on record, including Reno, Nev., and Palm Springs, Calif.

It's possible other "nonpopulated or nonmeasured areas" on Earth have reached higher temperatures, Brettschneider said. Some climatologists believe the 129-degree temperature recorded in June 2013 is the highest temperature reliably measured there and anywhere on the planet, for that matter. In the national Park we found a few dead animals without any wounds - they killed the heat. In mid-July from the hellish heat here killed a tourist, and 2 travelers from France ended up in hospital with sun stroke and dehydration. "We suspect that these animals are casualties of this record period of heat". Cell phones don't work in much of the park.

Visitors are urged to "travel prepared to survive", avoid hiking at low elevations and return to their air-conditioned cars for a cool-down after just 10 to 15 minutes of exposure outdoors.

Because, you know. It's hot out.
