It has never been so hot so late in mid-October in Germany: the highest temperatures so far in the second decade of October since weather records began in 1881 were measured in Rheinfelden and Müllheim in Baden-Württemberg. As the German Weather Service (DWD) reported, temperatures of 30.1 degrees were recorded at both stations. Both values ​​have been confirmed according to the DWD.

This broke the Germany-wide decade record for mid-October: This means that between October 11th and 20th it was never as warm in Germany as it was on this Friday. Previously this mark was 28.9 degrees in Bad Reichenhall in Bavaria (October 15, 2000).

At the same time, a so-called hot day – with temperatures over 30 degrees – was observed at the two stations in Rheinfelden and Müllheim. This is the latest occurrence of a hot day since weather records began. The all-time October record still stands at 30.9 degrees in Müllheim on October 7, 2009.
