HANOI – Vietnam reported record-high temperatures late Saturday, with north-central weather stations measuring 44.1 degrees Celsius, breaking the previous record for 2019.

South Asia experiences extreme heat for most of April, with record temperatures in neighboring countries.

Vietnam’s weather varies from north to south, but the whole country is entering its hottest summer.

A record temperature of 44.1 degrees Celsius was measured Saturday afternoon at the indoor Hoi Xuan Observatory in north-central Thanh Hoa province, according to the National Hydrometeorological Forecasting Center.

The figure broke the country’s highest temperature record of 43.4 degrees Celsius recorded in the Huong Ke district in central Ha Tinh province on April 20, 2019.

“This is an alarming record in the context of climate change and global warming,” climate change expert Nguyen Ngoc Huy told AFP from the capital Hanoi.

“I think this record will repeat itself over and over again,” he said. “This confirms that extreme climate models have proven to be true.”

Scientists say global warming is exacerbating severe weather, with a recent report from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change saying that “every time global warming increases, multiple simultaneous hazards will occur. will intensify,” he warned.
