The city of Quriyat in Oman now has a dubious distinction to its name: It has recorded the highest “low” temperature in known history.
The Middle Eastern town of about 50,000 residents clocked in at a low temperature of 42.6°C (108.7°F) on June 26, 2018.
That was the lowest point of the temperature over a 24-hour period, as noted by weather expert Maximiliano Herrera. Not only did Quriyat hit that astonishing low temperature, it remained that hot for nearly 51 hours. Something to keep in mind when you make travel plans.
