A new temperature record has been confirmed by the World Meteorological Organization. This time, it's not for heat, but for cold.
Central Greenland is now the record-holder for extreme cold in the Northern Hemisphere. The WMO confirmed on Wednesday that an automated weather station named Klinck, located near the summit of the Greenland Ice Sheet, measured a temperature of -69.6°C (-93.3°F) on December 22, 1991.
