There's nothing to see here folks. "Global warming is a myth propagated by China."

On June 20, 2020 it hit 100.4 °F in Verkhoyansk, Russia north of the Arctic Circle.


It Just Hit 100 Degrees Fahrenheit in Siberia, the Hottest Temperature on Record So Far North in the Arctic

Dammit - That's 38°C. The highest temperature in Britain this year was a couple of days ago, at 33°!

I think 38 is the highest EVER recorded in the UK.

Holidays in Siberia, anyone?

Damn, Siberia was my backup plan after it hit 40°C in Belgium last year...

Now it's highest ever recorded in Verkhoynsk. :) It's MI6 meddling in our affairs.

They say temperatures higher than 30 are not that unusual there.

The article I linked to in my post states that the normal high for the area is 20°C.

I'm not acquainted with this nomenclature. I've heard of average highs and absolute highs. And yes, sometimes it comes to extremes.
