Sicily sees highest-ever temperature recorded in Europe

Italy records ‘hottest ever temperature in Europe’ at 48.8C

The Metro says: Italy may have smashed the European temperature record amid a heatwave scorching southern parts of the continent.

The near 50ºC heat apparently recorded in Sicily on Wednesday comes just two days after a landmark climate study made dire warnings about the global environmental crisis.

The city of Syracuse’s new provisional record of 48.8ºC (119.8 Fahrenheit) would easily beat the previous continental high of 48ºC, which has stood from more than 40 years.

If confirmed by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) – which does not recognise the previous Sicilian high from 1999 of 48.5ºC – it will see the record set in Eleusis, Greece, in 1977, finally tumble.
