If you think it is too hot where you live, then don’t travel to Death Valley! On Sunday, June 8, 2014 an amazing 120°F was measured. It was the first time but probably not the last time in 2014.
This is pretty high if you think that average highs this time of the year are around 108 degrees (and can climb up to 117 degrees from mid-July to the beginning of August). But if you still want to visit this unexpected place, you should go early mornings, when temperatures are around 90 degrees.
Did you know?
Other than the Desert Southwest states of Arizona, Nevada, California and New Mexico, only six other states (Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, South Dakota and North Dakota) have ever recorded a temperature in the 120s, most of which occurred during the historically hot Dust Bowl summer of 1936, according to Weather Underground.
