Pending verification, unofficial temperature of 130ºF at Death Valley NP would be hottest since 1913
DEATH VALLEY, Ca. – While we were unseasonably cool this past weekend, Death Valley kept up its reputation for the blistering heat. This blistering heat, however, may very well have turned historic.
An unofficial temperature reading at the Valley’s Furnace Creek came in at 130° shortly before 4 p.m. local time Sunday. That would tie the highest temperature recorded on Earth since July of 1913.
