New tem­pe­ra­tu­re record in Lon­gye­ar­by­en

Temperature record in Longyearbyen

The tem­pe­ra­tu­re dis­play at the petrol sta­ti­on show­ed 23 degrees (cen­tig­ra­de) on Satur­day after­noon. The offi­cial mea­su­re­ment was 21.7°C.

Sum­mer heat bey­ond 21°C – that is very unusu­al for Lon­gye­ar­by­en. The hig­hest tem­pe­ra­tu­re ever so far had been 21.3 degrees cen­tig­ra­de, mea­su­red on 16 July 1979. This record was bro­ken on Satur­day late after­noon, when the offi­cial tem­pe­ra­tu­re record went up to 21.7°C.

A record-brea­king tem­pe­ra­tu­re of 21.7°C was mea­su­red on Satur­day after­noon in Lon­gye­ar­by­en. The gla­ciers defi­ni­te­ly lost a lot of ice during this wee­kend. Many tons of mel­ted ice run off every minu­te here in the river in Lon­gye­ar­by­en.

A light bree­ze made the heat wave beara­ble, though. The out­side are­as of the restau­rants were crow­ded, and it seems a safe guess that a record-brea­king num­ber of BBQs were ope­ra­ted in and near Lon­gye­ar­by­en on Satur­day evening.

The record sum­mer heat of 21.7°C may well haved resul­ted in a record-brea­king num­ber of BBQs going at the same time.
