100th Anniversary of World's Hottest Temperature

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.
