Posted: Updated:
DEATH VALLEY, CA -

Do you know what the hottest high temperature in the world?  Well, now you do! The hottest world high temperature is 134 degrees and the record was set 100 years ago today (July 10, 1913) in Death Valley, California.

Death Valley will generally see 100 degree temps (or exceed 100 degree temperatures) for about five months from May to October.

Climate data for that year recorded high temperatures of 125 degrees or higher for 10 days – July 5th to July 14th 2013.

Death Valley's high temperature should be nowhere near 134 degrees today, however it still remains toasty with a forecast of 115 degrees this afternoon.

    Then do so thrice more ere a year and a half is done,
    'Tis not the herald of the apocalypses
    Just the first of four total lunar eclipses.
