Climatologists from the German Meteorological Service (DWD) said on Tuesday that Germany had never experienced a thermal alternation in the modern era as high as that recorded at the weather station in Gottingen, a city in the center of the country.
A temperature of -23.8 degrees Celsius was recorded at that station on February 14. Seven days later, on February 21, German meteorologists recorded a temperature of +18.1 degrees Celsius, marking a thermal difference of 41.9 degrees Celsius.
To find a comparable oscillation, German meteorologists had to follow the course of history many years ago. The previous record in the field was set in May 1880, during the first days of meteorological measurements. Then, a 41-degree rise in outside temperature was measured over a seven-day period, the DWD spokesman said. (source: Agerpres)
