Extreme Weather Records

Posted by on Monday, September 19, 2016

In Canada we have it all. The hot, the cold, the wet. But our weather has nothing on these extreme global records.
The lowest temperature noted was -89.2°C in Vostok, Antarctica.

Death Valley, California holds the highest temperature record at 56.7°C set in 1913.

The greatest rainfall in 24 hours was at Foc-Foc, La Réunion during Cyclone Denise when 1825 mm of rain fell from January 7 to 8, 1966.
