Kingston Records Hottest Day In Over Two Decades
The Meteorological Service of Jamaica has revealed that Thursday (July 3) was the hottest day in Kingston in 24 years.
The maximum temperature at the Norman Manley International Airport was 36.9 degrees Celsius.
The Met Office attributed the high temperature a confluence of factors including a high pressure ridge, the angle of the sun and little to no rainfall in recent days.
36.9°C for Norman Manley Int’l represents the highest temperature recorded since 1993.
It was also hot in Montego Bay on Thursday. Jamaica’s second city recorded a milder temperature of 34.9°C at Sangster Int’l Airport. The highest temperature ever recorded in Montego Bay was 35.8°C in June 2012.
Kingston’s highest temperatures in 2016, 2015, and 2014 were 35.5°C (July), 35.3°C (June), and 35.4°C (July) respectively.
