Antarctica just experienced its single hottest day ever recorded, hitting a high of 69.35 degrees Fahrenheit (20.75 degrees Celsius) on February 9, a team of Argentine researchers reported.
Temperatures in Antarctica were hotter than 68 degrees Fahrenheit for the first time ever last Sunday. As per Brazilian Scientist Carlos Schaefer, temperatures as high as this have never been seen before. This broke the previous high of 17.5°C (63.5°F) recorded on March 24, 2015.
If correct, it will beat the previous record high temperature on non-mainland Antarctica of 19.8°C (67.64°F), which was taken on Signy Island in January 1982.
The reading took place at Seymour Island, which happens to be a part of the chain off the peninsula which forms a curve from the northernmost tip of the freezing continent and is also home to the Marambio research base of Antarctica.
"We can't use this to anticipate climatic changes in the future".
However, the fact that Antarctica, the icy continent is witnessing temperatures in the 20s will only add fuel to the scare of the planet warming situation.
