The world's highest recorded air temperature is officially recognized by the World Meteorological Organization as 134F (57.6C) recorded at Death Valley, California, USA on 10 July 1913.

El Azizia, Libya, held this record for decades, after recording a temperature of 136 F (58C) on 13 September 1922. It was coincidentally also on 13 September of 2012 that this record was stripped by the WMO after a team of experts determined that there were enough questions surrounding this measurement that this temperature was probably not really recorded.

The temperature had been suspect in atmospheric science circles for a number of reasons. One being that the time of year is inconsistent with such a high reading. Also, the type and exposure of the measuring instruments cast doubt on the accuracy of the data. However, other temperatures in the same general area approach that maximum, especially in the cloudless southern Sahara, far from the moderating effects of water.
