‘Heat dome’ sends temperatures to 165F in Iran

(London Daily Mail) If the mercury heads north of 70F in Britain, the nation tends to go ‘summer crazy’ and breaks out the budgie smugglers, sandals and shorts.

But spare a thought for residents in the city of Bandar Mahshahr, south-west Iran, where ‘hot’ has taken on a whole new meaning.

Today, it reached a super-sweltering 165F (74C) on the heat index (or ‘feel-like’ temperature), taking into account humidity – making it one of the highest temperatures ever recorded.

Bandar Mahshahr’s air temperature registered 115F (46C) coupled with a dew point temperature of 90F (32C) at 4.30pm local time.
