Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: Saturday will be the milder of the two days. Sun and clouds will be the rule with early weekend highs in the mid 80s. Back to the low to mid 90s on Sunday!
WASHINGTON (December 9, 2013) A new look at NASA satellite data shows that Earth set a record for the lowest temperature ever recorded in August 2010 in East Antarctica, where the mercury dropped to minus 135.8 degrees, so cold that scientists say it hurts to breathe.
The temperature dropped on July 31 in the same place to 135.3 degrees.
Ice scientist Ted Scambos at the National Snow and Ice Data Center said the record low temperature is about 50 degrees colder than anything in Alaska.
Scambos announced the cold facts at the American Geophysical Union scientific meeting Monday in San Francisco.
