CALIFORNIA: Temperatures at 'Ferns Creek' in the 'Death Valley' of the Southern California Desert on Sunday were 59 degrees Celsius. The U.S. National Weather Service said the temperature had risen to six degrees Celsius. According to the US Meteorological Agency, it is the highest temperature in the world in 100 years.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in La Vega provided the important information by reading the ‘Automated Observation System’ on Sunday afternoon. The NWS said that if it was checked, the temperature would be higher than the one officially monitored in July 1913.

On July 10, 1913, the temperature in the Greenland Ranch was 59 degrees below the Death Valley. It reached 4 degrees Celsius. The World Meteorological Agency has so far recorded it as the highest temperature on Earth's surface.

But, as it matters, it will be formally reviewed before it can be recorded, ‘NWS’ La Vega said, citing a statement.

It may be mentioned here that the NWS's automatic weather center is located near the Audience Center near the Nebada border. The maximum temperature was 3:41 p.m., local time.
