Weather of Arabia - The city of Basra recorded the highest maximum temperature on the face of the Earth in the last 24 hours, which recorded a maximum temperature of 51.1 degrees Celsius, exceeding all Gulf countries.

Data from the World Meteorological Organization, which is responsible for collecting recorded temperatures for the purposes of documentation from country observatories, also showed that the list of the 10 hottest cities in the world are all Iraqi cities!

Specialists at the Arabia Weather Center said that this comes as a result of the intensification of the high air pressure in the high layers of the atmosphere over the southeastern Arabian Peninsula region, coinciding with a superficial deepening of the thermal depression in the southern corner of Iraq, which leads to temperatures rising to scorching values exceeding 50. Degrees Celsius, which is half the boiling point.
