Shanghai today records the hottest May day in 100 years

Shanghai, China: Residents in Shanghai on Monday experienced the hottest day in May in 100 years, suggesting the fallout of global warming is becoming more apparent.

The city’s meteorological service reported temperatures breaking a previous records by ‘full degree’, news agency AFP reported.

The service’s statement on social media Weibo said that ‘at 13:09 the temperature at Xujiahui station hit 36.1 degrees Celsius’, which shattered a 100-year-old record of a day in May.

The hottest day for the city comes as erratic weather events being reported from several parts of the world with untimely rain and prickly heat.

The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently warned that ‘every increment of global warming will intensify multiple and concurrent hazards,’ according to the report.

Shocking further, temperature at the metro station in central Shanghai was recorded even higher than 36.7 degrees Celsius.

The weather service for the city said temperature climbed above 35.7 degrees Celsius, which was previously recorded in in 1876, 1903, 1915 and 2018.

The United Nations in May warned that the 2023-2027 will become the warmest five years ever recorded.

A combination of greenhouse gases and El Nino is blamed for rising temperatures.
