High Temperatures

109F in Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles

We’re in Los Angeles for the weekend to attend a wedding and it’s scorch­ing­ly hot. I took this photo of the car’s dashboard while we were at a stop light in Topanga Canyon. It reads 109°F (43°C). I actually saw the tem­per­a­ture briefly reach 111°F. I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced the low hundreds before, but I don’t think I’ve ever felt 109°F.

June was the 14th con­sec­u­tive month of record-breaking global tem­per­a­tures. Even Ireland is getting in on the act, with tem­per­a­tures soaring to 30°C (86°F) the other day.
