Did this city record the world's hottest temperature?

A city in southwest Iran, Ahvaz, soared to 53.7 degrees Celsius making it the country’s hottest temperature ever recorded. It is also the highest June temperature recorded in Asia.

Weather Underground revealed that temperature in Ahvaz hit 54 degrees Celsius at 4:51pm and 5:00pm local time, and if this reading is accurate, it would be the hottest temperature measured in the history.

All of these record-breaking temperatures in recent years, including the temperature in Ahvaz, represent temperature extremes consistent with what climate scientists expect to see in a warming world.

According to a latest research, Nature Climate Change cautioned that by the end of the century, due to climate change, temperatures in the Middle East may become too hot for human survival.
