Life-threatening heat breaks temperature record in India 

City of Phalodi in Rajasthan state has broken the country’s temperature record after registering 51°C (123.8°F), the highest in India since records began, said the weather office.

The new record surpasses the previous record for the hottest temperature set at 50.6°C in 1956.

Much of northern India has been plagued by a lingering heatwave with temperatures exceeding 40°C for several weeks, while dozens, more likely hundreds, of people have died from extreme heat in the southern states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

The record [contested] for the highest air temperature in the world, 56.7°C (134°F), was  set on July 10, 1913 in Death Valley, California.

U.S. Selected Significant Climate Anomalies January – April 2015

Selected monitoring stations shown on the map had one of their three warmest, coolest, wettest or driest January through April on record. Bold white circle show record value at the station’s current location. The smaller circles indicate year-to-date results that were 2nd or 3rd place among a station’s history. To avoid many overlapping or crowded dots in a region, a small subset of stations across the United States were plotted. There are many stations having “top three” or “bottom three” years that are not depicted in the map. The stations under consideration are listed in other supplemental pages (temperature, precipitation). Source: NCDC/NOAA.
