Record High Temperature on Mount Hoe Zonblick in the Alps Due to Warm Air from Africa: Geosphere Austria

A new temperature record was measured on an Austrian peak in the Alps, 3106 meters high, DPA reported, BTA reported.

On July 11, 15.7 degrees were measured on Mount Hoer Zonblick, scientists from Geosphere Austria announced today. The record was set because of extremely warm air coming from Africa through the Mediterranean and reaching Austria, the researchers said. The air temperature of 15.7 degrees is about ten degrees higher than the usual values ​​for this time of the year.

“In the period from 1991 to 2020 for July, the usual maximum temperatures of Sonblick were about six degrees above zero, and from 1961 to 1990 – 4.2 degrees,” explained Gerhard Hohenwarter. Since measurements at the Zonblick observatory began in 1886, temperatures have exceeded 15 degrees only five times.

“All values ​​of at least 15 degrees have been recorded in the recent past, which confirms the trend towards an increasingly hot climate,” explained Hohenwarter. The Sonnblick observatory on the Hohe Tauern mountain near Salzburg is said to be the highest continuously operated observatory in Europe. According to scientists, in addition to daily routine measurements, about 40 national and international research projects are being worked on every year.
